Key to Minas Gerais Tribes of Bryocorinae 

1 Pronotum with a distinct, narrow collar (subequal to diameter of fore tibia), dorsally well delimited by a deep groove; ostiolar auricle and evaporative area well developed, if reduced, wing membrane with two cells.............................. 2

- Pronotum without a distinct, narrow collar; sometimes with a broader collarlike area (much broader than diameter of fore tibia), lacking a well-delimited dorsal groove; ostiolar auricle and evaporative area greatly reduced; wing membrane with only one cell............................................................................................. 3

2 Tarsomeres uniformly slender; hind tibia with distinct spines; hemelytral membrane with two cells; elongate, slender species.............................................................................................. Dicyphini 

- Tarsomeres dilated or thickened distally; hind tibia without distinct spines or spines small and obscured by simple setae; hemelytral membrane with one cell; short, oval or elongate-oval species..................................... Bryocorini 

3 Claws with large, fleshy pulvilli attached along inner surface (Figs. 1 a, b); antenna never as long as body to apex of membrane; variably shaped species, usually less than 7.00 mm long (some species of Aspidobothrys Reuter  more than 8.00 mm)........................................................................................... Eccritotarsini 

- Claws without large, fleshy pulvilli along inner surface, instead with large, distally free pseudopulvilli arising from bases of claws; antenna as long or longer than body to apex of membrane; large, elongate, shiny species (Fig. 2) more than 8.0 mm long........................................................................................... Monaloniini
