The genus Tinocallis Matsumura, 1919 is one of the large genera of the subfamily Calaphidinae with 19 species worldwide. From recent expeditions in Laos, we recognized the heavy infestation of Tinocallis himalayensis Ghosh, Ghosh & Raychaudhuri, 1971, which is new record in Laos, on Queen's crape-myrtle, Lagerstroemia speciosa (Lythraceae). In this paper, the diagnosis and illustrations for the alate viviparous female are provided with the images of live aphids and damage on host plant.
