Abstract: The generic status of Megatrioza Crawford is reviewed, and the importance of the immature stages in psyllid systematics, and in the systematics of Hawaiian Megatrioza, are discussed. M. palmicola Crawford is redescribed, based on adults of both sexes and immatures. Three new Hawaiian Megatrioza (M. kauaiensis, M. molokaiensis and M. mauiensis) are described, and keys to adults and nymphal stages of the Hawaiian species are provided. Biological data, including observations on courtship behavior, are also presented.
