Smith (2005) recorded two species in northern South America, Venezuela, Colombia, and Ecuador, the southern extent of this Holarctic genus. One species, Aneugmenus merida  Smith, was reared from bracken fern, Pteridium aquilinum  (L.) in Venezuela. The specimen collected here is a male and could be either of the two species; the male is not known for Aneugmenus colombia  Smith.
