The only world revision of Bethylidae since Kieffer (1914). Diagnoses, taxonomic evaluation, keys, and a checklist of all extant genera and subfamilies are provided. Examining over 400,000 specimens from museums around the world, this work has contributed 153 new or revalidated combinations, 16 new genus-group synonyms, 11 species with revalidated status, and 1 synonym. The genus-group synonym Pristepyris Kieffer was revalidated as a senior synonym of Acrepyris.
