Notes:
Cowan (1970: 7) stated:-

To conserve space, many obvious minor errors in punctuation and spelling, and cases where type-species are printed bold when they should not be (e.g. for Achivus, Aecas) or vice versa (Ampittia, Apyrrothrix) have been disregarded.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
