 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: Comments: McKenna and Bell (1997) divided this subfamily into two tribes, Emballonurini Gervais, 1855 (Mosia, Emballonura, Coleura) and Diclidurini Gray, 1866 (Neotropical emballonurids). However, both of these groups may be paraphyletic as so defined (Dunlop, 1998). Accordingly, I do not recognize tribes within Emballonurinae at this time. For a key to Neotropical species see Jones and Hood (1993)
