reviewed by R.A.B. Leschen, June 1995

The genera Atomaria and Cryptophagus, containing the largest number of species, as well as species of Atomariini (Tisactia, Ephistemus), Caenoscelini (Caenoscelus), and Cryptophagini (Henoticus and Henotiderus) require detailed taxonomic study before detailed geographic information can be tabulated for Florida
