Genus Morion Latreille, 1810 

Morion  Latreille, 1810: 159. Type species: Harpalus monilicornis  Latreille, 1805 by monotypy. Etymology. Uncertain, possibly from the Greek morion (piece, part, portion, section) or from the Latin morio, - onis (fool, simpleton); morio or morion was also the name of a gem in Pliny the Elder [masculine]. Note. Morio  is an incorrect subsequent spelling not in prevailing usage, introduced by Lamarck (1817: 510) and accepted by Latreille (1818b: 385) himself as the proper Latin name for the French name Morion.

Diversity.

About 40 species (Lorenz 2005: 247) in temperate, subtropical, and tropical areas of the Nearctic (two species), Neotropical (9 species), Australian (15 species), Oriental (eight species), Palaearctic (four species), and Afrotropical (three species) Regions.
