Diagnosis. See Klimaszewski & Pelletier (2002).

Type species. Tinotus cavicollis Sharp, 1883   , by subsequent designation ( Fenyes, 1918).

Discussion. The genus Tinotus Sharp, 1883   currently includes about 30 valid species ( Klimaszewski & Pelletier 2002; Hanley 2002). Recently Hanley (2002) published a world catalogue of the genus. Klimaszewski and Pelletier (2002) revised the types of Nearctic species of Tinotus   , synonymized some species names and provided a key for identification of Tinotus   of America north of Mexico.

Casey (1911a) described the genus Acrimea   , including three species described in the same paper. He placed Acrimea   in the tribe Aleocharini   and considered it related to Thiasophila Kraatz, 1856   and Ischnoglossa Kraatz, 1856   . Subsequently Acrimea   was considered to be a member of the tribe Oxypodini   ( Fenyes 1918, 1920; Bernhauer & Scheerpeltz 1926; Seevers 1978; Newton et al. 2000).

My revision of the types of the three species of Acrimea   revealed that in all three the tarsal formula is in fact 4­5­5 and all three belong to the genus Tinotus   . The type species of Acrimea   , Acri. resecta   , is a synonym of Ti. acerbus   (see below). Therefore, Acrimea   is a junior synonym of Tinotus   .

Because Acrimea   was erroneously considered to have the tarsal formula 5­5­5, the genus was incorrectly listed in key B to the Nearctic genera of aleocharines ( Newton et al. 2000: 303). Couplet 19 should be deleted from key B, and couplet 18 should be modified as follows:
