Lulilan obscurus gen. nov. spec. nov., Lulilan spinifer spec. nov. and Phine succinea gen. nov. spec. nov. are described as new. Lulilan obscurus and L. spinifer are the closest relatives of L. furcatus (Hardwicke, 1823). The elongated abdominal segments 7–8 and long dististyli in the males are synapomorphies of the three species, while a processus (sternal spur) at the male’s 2nd abdominal sternum is indicative of a sistergroup relationship between obscurus and spinifer. - The wings of Phine succinea are devoid of any markings. Abdominal segments 7 and 8 are distally enlarged in the male. Medigynium (female) with a medium-sized apodeme. Apodeme without laterally extending processes serving as attachment devices for musculature in other species.
