dc.description.abstract "Echemoides is redefined to include those echemines with pseudosegmented tarsi. A cladogram, map, key, diagnoses, descriptions, and illustrations are provided for the 13 known species. Echemus argentinus Mello-Leitão, Echemus pampeanus Mello-Leitão, Echemus argentinensis Mello-Leitão, Echemus penicillatus Mello-Leitão, and Megamyrmecion gayi Simon are transferred to Echemoides. Three specific names are newly synonymized: E. pampeanus (Mello-Leitão) and E. uncinatus Mello-Leitão, both with E. argentinus (Mello-Leitão), and E. argentinensis (Mello-Leitão) with E. penicillatus (Mello-Leitão). Nine new species are described: E. mauryi from Paraguay and Argentina, E. balsa from Argentina, E. penai from Peru and Chile, E. aguilari from Peru, and E. tofo, E. schlingeri, E. illapel, E. malleco, and E. rossi from Chile. The male of E. gayi (Simon) and the female of E. giganteus Mello-Leitão are described for the first time. Previous revisions of American echemines are supplemented by the description of three new species (Zimiromus canje from Guyana, Z. dorado from Peru, and Z. nadleri from Surinam) and the female of the Californian species Scopodes gertschi Platnick"--P.
