Abstract

A key is given for the identification of the 11 American genera of the Efferia-group of Asilinae (Asilidae), also a catalogue of the neotropical species. The following genera are proposed as new: Albibarbefferia (type-species, Erax albibarbis Macquart, 1838); Aridefferia (type-species, Erax aridus Williston, 1893); Carinefferia (type-species, Erax carinatus Bellardi, 1861); Pogoniefferia (type-species, Asilus pogonias Wiedemann, 1821);and Tuberculefferia (type-species, Erax tuberculatus Coquillett, 1904).
