Abstract: A new genus of Oedipodinae, Chinabacris Kumar and Usmani gen. N. (type species Chinabacris trisulcata Kumar and Usmani sp. N.), is described and illustrated from India. The description was based on both conventional morphological and genitalic characters. The identifying features of the new genus are the dorso-ventrally compressed body and median carina of pronotum crossed by three transverse sulci. A key to the Indian genera of the subfamily edipodinae is also provided.
