Tribe Rhynchophorini  Schoenherr

These are the largest New World Dryophoridae with some individuals reaching up to 50 mm in length. Three species in the genera Dynamis  and Rhynchophorus  occur in Costa Rica and Panama. They are recognized by large size, the form of the articulation between the femur and tibia which consists of a set of flanges and brackets, lack of a second small apical tibial tooth and sternite 9 is absent in males ( Kuschel 1995).
