The neotropical tribe Anisomorphini sensu Bradley & Galil, 1997 have always been a taxonomically problematic group. The authors published a revision of the tribe (Conle & Hennemann, 2002), which affects the systematic position or scientific name of some cultured species. The following paper provides a list of all genera belonging to Anisomorphini as well as determination keys to the males and females. Special reference is made to the identity of species included on the PSG culture-list, with the valid names being listed, along with information on each culture's history and origin.
