(based on Dai & Dietrich 2015).

1. Head with transition from crown to face distinctly angulate in profile (Dai & Dietrich 2015: 287, fig. 1B)............... 2

- Head with transition from crown to face rounded in profile, without distinct margin (Figs 2, 84, 94).................... 3

2. Ocelli on anterior margin of head at crown-face transition; face shagreen ventrally and transversely striate dorsally; male clypeus flat, narrower at base than at apex ( Evans 1974: 167, figs 1A, B, D) ( New Caledonia)........... Selenomorphus Evans  

- Ocelli on face well below crown-face transition; face coarsely punctate, without transverse striations; male clypeus strongly convex, wider basally than at apex (Dai & Dietrich 2015: 287, fig. 1E) (South America)........ Linnavuoria Dai & Dietrich  

3. Lorum and clypeus not sexually dimorphic (Figs 3, 16) (South America)..................... Parapachyopsis   gen. nov.

4. Forewing without setae (Figs 94, 106); first tarsomere with rows of simple (non-cucullate) setae (Fig. 98); abdominal sternite II of male without elongated internal apodemes; AD row of metatibia with intercalary setae between macrosetae (Central and South America).........................................................................
