Abstract

An alphabetical genus-group catalogue of the family Eucnemidae is given with type species citations. The catalogue is up-dated to 1984. Type designations are made for three names, Compsocnemis Bonvouloir, Feaía Fleutíaux and Sassanus Fleutiaux. The author of the genus Perothops is shown to be Laporte, 1838, that of the genus Oisocerus Bonvouloir in Murray, 1868. The descriptions of Rhigmaphorus Guérin-Méneville, 1843 and Sphaerocephalus brasiliensis, Germar 1839 are regarded to be valid. Haywardinia Cobos, 1964 and Suareziella Cobos, 1964 are shown to be junior homonyms. Willinkia Cobos is shown to be a nomen nudum. The correct usage of some misapplied names is emphasized: Farsus Jacquelin du Val, 1863 (=Hylochares auctt. nec Latreille, 1834), Galbites Fleutiaux, 1918 (=Pterotarsus auctt. nec Guérin-Méneville, 1831). Hylis des Gozis, 1886 (=Hypocaelus auctt. nec Dejean, 1833), Microrhagus Dejean, 1833 (=Dirhagus Latreille, 1834) and Xylophilus Mannerheim, 1823 (=Xyloecus Dejean, 1833, =Xylobius Latreille, 1834).
