Micratopini   Casey, 1914: 42. Type genus: Micratopus   Casey, 1914.

Limnastini   Jeannel, 1937a: 245. Type genus: Limnastis   Ganglbauer, 1891 (unjustified emendation of Lymnastis   Motschulsky, 1862, not in prevailing usage) (= Lymnastis   Motschulsky, 1862).

Diversity.

Worldwide, with about 790 species (Lorenz 2005: 207-215). The Northern Hemisphere is represented by about 230 species (roughly 29% of the world fauna) and North America by 73 species (9.2% of the world fauna). Two species are adventive ( Porotachys bisulcatus   and Elaphropus parvulus   ) in the Nearctic Region. No species are Holarctic.

Note.

The genitive form of tachys is tachéos (see Alonso-Zarazaga 2007) and the family-group name based on the genus Tachys   should be spelled Tacheina   . However the spelling Tachyina   being in prevailing usage, it is maintained (ICZN 1999: Article 29.5).
