Key to species groups of American Glaresis 

1. Surface of pronotum and elytra with small, widely spaced, round tubercles, each bearing long, semi-erect seta ( Fig. 1AView Figures 1); posterolateral pronotal angle produced, flanged ( Fig. 1EView Figures 1); South America ................................................................................ Glaresis  - Pardoalcaidei Group

— Surface of pronotum and elytra with somewhat elongate tubercles, usually with ridges rather than tubercles; posterolateral pronotal angle not produced; north of Panama...................... 2

2(1). Clypeal apex straight, widely flattened, smooth, angled posteriorly ( Fig. 2BView Figures 2); pronotal foveae completely lacking ( Fig. 2CView Figures 2); metatibia deeply incised apically on inner and outer margins ( Fig. 2GView Figures 2) ....................................................................................... Glaresis  - Ecostata Group

— Clypeal apex usually medially emarginate or sinuate, not angled posteriorly; pronotal foveae distinctly visible or deeply impressed; metatibia not incised apically on inner and outer margins ..................................................................................................................................................... 3

3(2). Pronotal fovea deeply impressed ( Fig. 27CView Figures 27); elytral striae strongly, nearly continuously carinate ( Fig. 21AView Figures 21); metatasternal groove distinct, shallow or deep ( Fig. 21DView Figures 21, 27DView Figures 27); posterolateral emargination of mesotibia with 3 or 4 short, widely spaced spines ( Fig. 28DView Figures 28) ......................... ........................................................................................................ Glaresis  - Mendica Group

— Pronotal foveae weakly impressed ( Fig. 13CView Figures 13) or strongly impressed (inducta group); elytral striae rounded or weakly carinate (except G. inducta  and G. canadensis  ); metasternal groove indistinct or not discernable (except G. sabulosa  ); posterolateral emargination of mesotibia with more than 4 or more spines, spines usually long ............................................................................... 4

4(3). Clypeal apex flat ( Fig. 7BView Figures 7); Mesotibial apex strongly produced, apex somewhat acute (except G. clypeata  ) ( Fig. 8DView Figures 8); posterior margin of metafemur usually with tooth or angulation next to trochanter ( Fig. 7GView Figures 7) ................................................................... Glaresis  - Phoenicis Group

— Clypeal apex narrowly, weakly raised ( Fig. 17BView Figures 17): Mesotibial apex weakly produced, apex rounded ( Fig. 17DView Figures 17); posterior margin of metafemur without tooth or angulation next to trochanter ( Fig. 17GView Figures 17) ........................................................................................ Glaresis  - Inducta Group
