"The characters and history of the subfamily Cholinae together with a comparison with the subfamily Hylobiinae are presented. A taxonomic revision is made of two of the 33 genera of the Cholinae (Homalinotus with 21 species, and Ozopherus, monotypic). These genera occur in Central and South America and the Antilles, where some of the species breed in and damage palms, especially the coconut palm. A strongly sclerotized basal sclerite or copulating armature is found in the aedeagus of all species. Five new species from South America are described: Homalinotus alloides, praelongus, pectinis, kuscheli, and inopinatus. Homalinotus densatus Desbrochers des Loges is transferred to Cholus; H. cyanicollis (Olivier) remains unidentified; H. umbilicatus Desbrochers des Loges from Guadeloupe is reinstated as a valid species. Five species are placed in synonymy. Abebaeus Kirsch is added to the synonymy of Homalinotus. Photographs of all species are given"--P. 3.
