"The 21 known species of Zimiromus are diagnosed, described, and assigned to species groups. All but one of the previously known species had been placed in the European genus Echemus, the type species of which, E. ambiguus Simon, is redescribed and newly synonymized with E. angustifrons (Westring). The American species assigned to Echemus are not congeneric with E. angustifrons and belong to at least three different genera. Echemus medius Keyserling, E. lubricus Simon, E. tropicalis Banks, E. iotus Banks, E. banksi Chickering, and E. montanus Chickering are transferred to Zimiromus. Zimiromus banksi (Chickering) is synonymized with Z. iotus (Banks), and Z. fragilis Banks and Z. montanus (Chickering) are both synonymized with Z. tropicalis (Banks). The male of Z. medius (Keyserling) is described for the first time. Seventeen new species are described: Z. lingua and Z. tonina from Mexico; Z. malkini from Nicaragua; Z. chickeringi and Z. aduncus from Panama; Z. jamaicensis from Jamaica; Z. bimini from the Bahama Islands; Z. muchmorei from the Virgin Islands; Z. rabago, Z. kochalkai, and Z. eberhardi from Colombia; Z. exlineae, Z. penai, and Z. brachet from Ecuador; Z. circulus and Z. piura from Peru; and Z. reichardti from Brazil"--P.
