The taxonomy of three genera: Podapolipus s. str. Rovelli and Grassi, 1888 (sensu Regenfuss), Podapolipoides Regenfuss, 1968, and Bakerpolipus Husband and Sinha, 1970 is discussed. It is suggested to change the status of the genera to subgenera. The adult female of P. aharonii Hirst, rgzr is redescribed whereas the male and larviform female are described for the first time. Two new species are erected: P. (Podapolipus) tribolii associated with Tribolium confusttm, and P. (Bakerpolipus) coccinellae, associated with Cycloneda sanguinea. All developmental stages were studied.
