Myleus is a genus of serrasalmids from South America, where found in the Amazon, Orinoco, São Francisco and Paraguay–Paraná basins, as well as river basin of the Guiana Shield.

- Myleus knerii (Steindachner, 1881)
- Myleus latus (Jardine, 1841)
- Myleus levis C. H. Eigenmann & McAtee, 1907
- Myleus lobatus (Valenciennes, 1850)
- Myleus micans (Lütken, 1875)
- Myleus pacu (Jardine, 1841)
- Myleus rhomboidalis (G. Cuvier, 1818)
- Myleus schomburgkii (Jardine, 1841) (disk tetra)
- Myleus setiger J. P. Müller & Troschel, 1844
- Myleus ternetzi (Norman, 1929)
- Myleus tiete (C. H. Eigenmann & A. A. Norris, 1900)
