Stange Flolida State Collection of ArUllopods Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services P () Box 147100 Gainesville, FL. 32614-7100 U.S.A. Abstract A cladistic analysis of the New World tribe Brachynemurini has resulted in se\'eral new taxonomic designations. The tribe is divided into 3 tribes, 2 of which are newly described. The Brachynemurini s.s. now contains 12 genera of which Argentoleon, Atricholeon, Mexoleon and Venezueleon are newly described. The Gnopholeontini (NEVI TRIBE) includes 4 North American genera whereas the Lemolemini (NE'N TRIBE) contains 6 South American genera of which &ualeon and Galapagoleon are newly described. Descriptions of genera in the 3 tribes, based on adults and kno'JlIl larvae, are given. Keys to the genera in each tribe are provided, as well as a key to the tribes of Myrmeleontidae. KEY WORDS: Neuroptera, Myrmeleontidae, New World, keys, cladistics, phylogeny, classification. the Braehynemurini are given tribal status Relationships among higher taxa within the a short distal tooth of the larval mandible, which is were made: one of all genera and the other using only genera in which the larvae are known. enee Of phylogenetie relationships, t"'lO analyses Myrmeleontoidea have not previously been investi- gated eladistieally.
