Falklandiina  subtr. n.

Type genus.

Falklandius  Enderlein, 1907.


Small to very small (except Liparogetus  and some species of Gromilus  , which are medium-sized); rostrum stout, shorter than pronotum (except Gromilus  and Nestrius  , with relatively stout, medium-sized rostrum); pterygiae auriculate, exposed (Fig. 5); scrobes short, ill-defined, broad; eyes usually flat; postocular lobes usually absent (except Gromilus  and Falklandiopsis  ); pronotum usually subcircular or subcylindrical; metanepisternal suture usually posteriorly fused or obliterated; elytra oblong-oval.

Included taxa.

This new subtribe, which basically corresponds to the Falklandius  generic group of Morrone (1997a), includes the genera Falklandiellus  , Falklandiopsis  , Falklandius  , Gromilus  , Lanteriella  , Liparogetus  , Nestrius  and Telurus  . The genera Gromilus  , Liparogetus  and Nestrius  are distributed in New Zealand, whereas the five remaining genera are South American, distributed in the Subantarctic subregion of the Andean region (sensu Morrone, 2006).
