Abstract

We present a review of Scutelleridae from Argentina, based on literature and collection data. A total of 24 species distributed in 13 genera is recorded, one genus belonging to Scutellerinae and the remaining to Pachycorinae. A synthesis of systematics, distribution and biology of this group is presented, as well as a key to subfamilies and genera and a list of host plants of the Argentinean species. The study of more specimens deposited in collections and the identification of undetermined material may raise the total of recorded species. Additionally, a greater sampling effort in southern provinces and high altitude regions may enhance knowledge of the biogeography and diversity of this group in Argentina.
