Key to Western Hemisphere genera of Tribe Zuphiini
(from Ball & Shpeley, 2013) Western Hemisphere Zuphiini: descriptions of Coarazuphium whiteheadi, new species, and Zuphioides, new genus, and classification of the genera (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
1     Maxillary and labial palpi similar to one another in size and proportions; maxillary palpomere 4 not markedly enlarged. Head posteriorly markedly constricted as a narrow neck. Male fore-tarsomeres 1-3 with adhesive vestiture pad-like, not biseriate or with a single row of squamo-setae     Zuphium genus-group, 2
1’     Maxillary palpi much larger than labial palpi; maxillary palpomere 4 markedly enlarged. Head posteriorly less constricted. Male fore-tarsomeres 1-3 with adhesive vestiture biseriate, or a single row of squamo-setae     3
2(1’)     Eyes absent or flat, ommatidia not evident. Metepisternum about quadrate. Elytra with humeri markedly constricted, lateral margins broadly rounded     Coarazuphium Gnaspini, Vanin & Godoy
2’     Eyes convex, normal size, ommatidia evident. Metepisternum elongate, longer than wide at base. Elytra with humeri broadly rounded, lateral margins straight, parallel to one another     Zuphioides
3(2’)     Head posteriorly constricted as very narrow neck (more or less as wide as diameter of one eye). Gonocoxite 2 of ovipositor without ensiform setae, with slender setae on dorsal margin, near base (Mateu 1992: 196)     
Mischocephalus genus-group, 4
3’     Head posteriorly with neck thick (wider than diameter of one eye). Gonocoxite 2 with broad ensiform setae (Mateu 1992: 201)     Patrizia genus-group, 5
4(3)     Elytron with lateral margin straight for most of length. Pronotal posteriolateral angles long, very prominent spines. Labium with submentum and mentum fused (Mateu 1992)     Mischocephalus Chaudoir
4’     Elytron with lateral margin broadly rounded. Pronotal posteriolateral angles short spines. Labium with submentum and mentum separated by a suture     ChaudoirellaMateu
5(3’)     Pronotal posteriolateral angles not spined     Pseudaptinus Laporte de Castelnau
5’     Pronotal posteriolateral angles each a small, sharp spine     6
6(5’)     Antennal socket limited above and below by a sharp carina, inferior carina better developed than superior one (clearly visible from above). Antennomere 1 relatively shorter (slightly shorter than antennomeres 2-4). Pronotum as long as wide; anterior angles more or less sharp. Integument generally glabrous     Metaxidius Chaudoir
6’     Antennal socket with superior and inferior carinae equally developed. Antennomere 1 relatively longer (as long or longer than antennomeres 2-4). Pronotum longer than wide. Pronotum and elytra setose     Thalpius LeConte
