Abstract

The genus Burtinus is revised. Its two species, Burtinus notatipennis (Stål) and Burtinus luteomarginatus Maldonado, may be distinguished by differences in features of the antenna, degree of hind-coxal separation, ovipositor, and genital capsule. B. notatipennis is widespread in Central and northern South America (and Trinidad), and it also occurs in the Bahamas, Arizona, Texas, and Florida. B. luteomarginatus, hitherto known only from the type locality (Puerto Rico), is found throughout elsewhere in the Greater Antilles (Cuba, Dominican Republic) and in Guana (British Virgin Islands). We give several new country records.
