Parancistrocerus de Saussure


Genus Parancistrocerus de Saussure  

This is a moderately large genus, with nearly 100 described species. The majority of the species are New World, but there is a substantial number in the Oriental Region (see, e. g., Giordani Soika 1994). While there is a serviceable key to the species north of Mexico ( Bohart 1952), the Neotropical species are unrevised. Genaro (2004) described a new species from Cuba.
