Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Tribes were formerly treated as separate subfamilies (Scoliinae and Campsomerinae). Since Osten (2005), the tribes Scoliini and Campsomerini are grouped under a differently defined Scoliinae.(1)
Explanation of Names
Scoliini Latreille, 1802
Scoliini are separated from Campsomerini by the single vein at the posterior margin of the submarginal cell (double vein in Campsomerini) (see diagram).(2)

The Scoliini in our area are divided into two genera. Members of Scolia have two submarginal cells, whereas members of Triscolia have three submarginal cells.
