Abstract
The genera of the family Phylliidae (Walking Leaves) (Phasmatodea: Areolatae) are revised and the relationships between them discussed. Nanophyllium Redtenbacher, 1906 differs strikingly from the other genera and is transferred in the Nanophylliini, trib. nov. A key to genera and species is provided. Nanphyllium adisi, spec. nov. from New Guinea is described for the first time. The paper includes a key to the species of Nanophyllium.
