The tribe Cybisterini contains five genera of which two, Regimbartina Chatany and Cybister Curtis occur in Africa. Regimbartina is known from West Africa and the Congo whilst Cybister is almost world wide in its distribution. Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand are occupied by two closely allied endemic genera Spencerhydrus Sharp and Homeodytes Rï¿½gimbart, but Cybister species also occur. In South America the genus Cybister is largely replaced by the genus Megadytes Sharp.
