Diversity description:

The Odontiinae includes about 90 valid genera and about 375 valid species (Nuss and collaborators, 2010). The species are partitioned about equally between two tribes, Odontiini and Eurrhypini, and taxa of rank below tribe have not yet been recognized. The low ratio of species per genus reflects a history of splitting and/or taxonomy based on few characters. Numerous species await description.
