This genus is distinguished from all its allies by its extraordinary Coloration; white, with parts of the wing and tail black, or, in some species, grey. The tail is shorter than in Carpophaga. Five species are known, ranging from the Andamans and Nicobars to Australia, but only one comes within British Indian boundaries.
