At present 44 species of apterous Aradidae are known from the Western Hemisphere. These are assigned to 12 genera, which are equally divided between the tribes Carventini and Mezirini of the sub-family Mezirinae. 25 species, of 7 genera, are known from Brazil only; 3 species, of 3 genera, have been taken elsewhere in South America; there are 2 species, of different genera, known from Panama, and 2 species of a single genus from the southern U. S. The remaining 12 species, representing 3 genera, are Antillean. Keys to tribes and genera are given, together with a checklist of genera and species.
