The status of the genus Platybelus is far from clear, and the classification should be clarified and new genera erected to separate the diverse forms now included in the genus. A number of specimens have been examined from various sources which appear to form natural links between genera of the Platybelinae, and in two instances to be presently discussed, seem to provide bridges between the subfamilies Centrotinae and Platybelinae.
