Agathidium Panzer, 1797: 13   . Type species: Tet-

ratoma globosa Herbst, 1791   (= A. seminulum  

(Linnaeus, 1758)) (by monotypy).

Note. Authority given as Illiger in Kugelann (1794) (Neave 1939–1940), but that refers to page 13 in Panzer (1797).

Taxonomy. Fall (1934a), Newton (1984), Wheeler (1984a, b), Miller and Wheeler (2005a, b), and Wheeler and Miller (2005). North American species below are arranged following Wheeler and Miller (2005) and Miller and Wheeler (2005b), and these publications contain keys for identification.

Biology. Adults and larvae of the species generally eat plasmodia or fruiting bodies of Myxomycetacea slime molds (Lawrence and Newton 1982; Newton 1984; Wheeler and Miller 2005).

Distribution. Holarctic, Oriental, New Guinea, Mexico, Guatemala, Dominican Republic (825 species). New (unpublished) state and province records are included in the distributions below based on SBP voucher specimens deposited in CMNC.
