Amerohelea galindoi Grogan and Wirth

Amerohelea galindoi Grogan and Wirth, 1981: 1294 ( Colombia; Panama, Venezuela); Borkent and Spinelli 2000: 59 (in New World catalog south of the USA; distribution); Borkent and Spinelli 2007: 92 (in Neotropical catalog; distribution).

Discussion. This strictly New World predaceous genus is primarily Neotropical with only one species, A. frontispina (Dow and Turner) , occurring in the Nearctic region as far north as California and Texas ( Borkent and Grogan 2009). We provide the first Caribbean records of Amerohelea from Guadeloupe.
