Anisepyris Kieffer, 1905  , 9: 248. Type species: Epyris amazonicus Westwood. Subsequent  designation by Kieffer & Marshal, 1905, 248.

Rhabdepyris (Lophepyris) Evans, 1959  , 61: 201–204. Type species: Rhabdepyris (Lophepyris) bridwelli Evans. Original  designation. Synonymy by Evans, 1964, 132: 96.

Trichotepyris Kieffer, 1906  , 9: 376. Type-species: Rhabdepyris pallidipennis Kieffer. Subsequent  designation by Muesebeck & Walkley, 1951, 2: 729 (proposed as subgenus of Rhabdepyris  ). Synonymy by Kieffer, 1914, 41: 346. Subgenus designation by Evans, 1965, 133: 69. Synonymy by Waichert & Azevedo, 2009, 2284: 22.

Diagnosis. Body dark castaneous nearly black, mostly with metallic colour reflections. Head with dense compound eye pilosity; mandible with four or five distal teeth in females, and five distal teeth in males; clypeal carina complete and arched in lateral profile; antennal scrobe usuallycarinate. Pronotum with transverse carina, absent in few species. Notaulus complete; anterior half of parapsidal signum continuous. Metapectal-propodeal disc with metapostnotal carina incomplete, and not fused with posterior carina; propodeal declivity sculptured. Mesopleuron with all foveae well defined. Female genitalia with 2vf (second valvifer) very swollen apically. Male genitalia with basiparamere mostly dorsal; cuspis bifid.

Remarks. Some characters were observed for the first time in Anisepyris  , such as the claw-shaped mandible ( Fig. 5FView FIGURE 5); the serrate antenna ( Fig. 14OView FIGURE 14); the antenna with second and third flagellomeres with distal spine projection ( Fig. 15AView FIGURE 15); the very long and slender clypeus ( Fig. 6IView FIGURE6); the clypeal carina fused and indistinct from the clypeus ( Fig. 6GView FIGURE6) or the carina very swollen ( Fig. 3EView FIGURE 3); the transverse pronotal carina with a series of foveae ( Fig. 15EView FIGURE 15); the pronotal disc with a median longitudinal line ( Fig. 15FView FIGURE 15); the posterior pronotal sulcus with a series of foveae ( Fig. 15EView FIGURE 15); the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present ( Fig. 15DView FIGURE 15); the first pair metapostnotal carina and metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent or fused ( Fig. 15JView FIGURE 15); and all characteristics related to female genitalia ( Fig. 30View FIGURE 30).
