Abstract

A key for the identification of the 17 American genera of Laphystiinae G. H. Hardy, with illustrations of spermathecae and other morphological details, is given. The following new genera and species are described: Chrysotriclis (type-species, C. willinkorum, sp. n.; type-locality: Argentina, Misiones, Loreto); Cochleariocera (type-species, C. neusae, sp. n.; type-locality: Brazil, Goiás, Rio Araguaia, Lago Rico); Cymbipyga (for Apoxyria cymbafer Artigas, 1983, from Chile); Gymnotriclis (type-species, G. coscaronorum, sp. n.; type-locality: Venezuela, Santa Ana, Tacarigua); and Protometer (with two species: P. evae, sp. n., the type-species, type-locality: Brazil, Amazonas, Paraná da Eva; and P. bokermanni, sp. n., type-locality: Brazil, Mato Grosso, São Domingos). Asicya Lynch Arribálzaga, 1880, is revalidated. A catalogue of the neotropical species is added.
