The species discussed here traditionally have been placed in the subfamily Aciurinae, a group that has long defied proper delineation. Recently (Hancock 1991), I transferred the group to a tribe within the Tephritinae and amalgamated it with the Tephrellini, that name having nomenclatural priority. The limits of the group were redefined, with many previously included genera being removed to other tribes. The Platensina group of genera, often considered to belong to the Aciurinae, was transferred to the Tephritini and accordingly is not treated in the present study.
