"The genus Rhinacloa Reuter is revised. Thirty-seven species are included, 17 of which are described as new. Campylomma cardini Barber and Bruner, Europiella mella Van Duzee, Psallus incaicus Carvalho and Gomes, Psallus insularis Carvalho, Psallus longirostris Carvalho, Psallus usingeri Carvalho and Sthenarus basalis Reuter are transferred to Rhinacloa. The following new synonymies are created: Rhinacloa antennalis (Reuter) = Rhinacloa melanotelus Reuter; Rhinacloa clavicornis (Reuter) = Rhinacloa subpallicornis Knight and Rhinacloa lepagei Carvalho; Rhinacloa forticornis Reuter = Psallus minutulus Reuter and Rhinacloa incerta Reuter; Rhinacloa basalis (Reuter), new combination = Rhinacloa pallida Reuter, Rhinacloa pusillus (Knight), and Rhinacloa castanea Carvalho; Rhinacloa pallidipes Maldonaldo = Lepidopsallus riodocensis Carvalho and Rhinacloa punctipes Maldonaldo. Demarata mirifica Distant is treated as a species incertae sedis. Rhinacloa araguaiana Carvalho is transferred to Paramixia Reuter (Pilophorini). Lygus ordinatus Distant is placed in Ellenia Reuter (Phylini). Illustrations are presented for the antennae and male genitalic structures of most known Rhinacloa species; scanning electron micrographs are presented for the pretarsus and scale-like setae of many species. A key to separate the included species is included. A phylogenetic analysis of the species is presented, using Campylomma verbasci Meyer-Dür, Microphylidea prosopidis Knight, and Nigrimiris pallipes Carvalho and Schaffner for outgroup comparison. Distributional maps are provided for all species, indicating a range for Rhinacloa from the southwestern United States, the Caribbean including the Florida Keys, (with three widely distributed species occurring in Florida), the Galapagos Islands, and south to northern Argentina and central Chile. Rhinacloa forticornis is introduced into Hawaii"--P. 382.
