Subfamilia Harpactorinae Amyot & Serville, 1843

Extralimital tribes: APIOMERINI Amyot & Serville, 1843, America; DIASPIDINI Miller, 1959, tropical Africa; LOPHOCEPHALINI Dohrn, 1859 (= TEGEINI Villiers, 1948; PHONOLIBINI Miller, 1952; PERISSORHINCHINI Miller, 1952), Old World tropics. The limits of the subfamily, the number of tribes included and the tribal placement of genera are not clear. Currently we follow the opinion of Davis (1969). The record of Sinea diadema (Fabricius, 1776) from Iran (Sakenin et al., 2008) seems erroneous.]
