The tribe Ipini (sub-tribe Ipina) contains the genera Pityokteines Fuchs, Ips De Geer, Orthotomicrlr Ferrari (BalachowsLv, 1W9) and 0)-thotomides Wood. Some of the characters used in previous keys in this group are not constant within a genus but are useful when combined with other characters and when exceptions are specified. This article presents a key to the genera, with a discussion of some characters that have been used in previous keys. A new species is described and new svnon.v m.v and a new combination are established.
