A new genus Rhinotergum and two new species are described. The genotype of this new genus, Rh. schestovici n. sp. is found on Prunus domestica L. and Malus domestica Borkh. leaves in Golubac and Bukovac, Mionica, Yugoslavia. The other species, Rh. cerasifoliae n. sp., is found on Prunus cerasus L. and P. avium L. in Cavtat and Belgrade, Yugoslavia. This new genus differs from the close genus Rhinophytopus by the presence of deep indentations on tergites. It is characterised by sternites and tergites of almost even width, legs with usual setae, undivided featherclaw and the presence of dorsal tubercles and setae. Rhinotergum n. genus goes into the family Diptilomiopidae (syn. Ryncaphytoptidae).
