Key to subfamilies and genera of Mantispidae with records in Colombia

1. Raptorial foreleg with two simple tarsal claws, arolium present; vertex elevated in frontal view ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 b)................ 2

- Raptorial foreleg with one tarsal claw, arolium absent ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 e); vertex concave in frontal view ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 c)... ( Mantispinae )... 5

2. First tarsomere of foreleg elongated, with a lanceolate process at apex ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 d)......................( Symphrasinae )... 3

- First tarsomere of foreleg short, without lanceolate process ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 f)................... (Drepanicinae).... Gerstaeckerella

3. Forefemur with sub-basal spine ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 g)................................................................... 4

- Forefemur without sub-basal spine ( Fig. 12 View FIGURE 12 d)...................................................... Trichoscelia

4. Cell 2 RA of forewing straight ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 a); hindtibia usually widened ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 h, i)............................... Anchieta

- Cell 2 RA of forewing curve ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 a); hindtibia not widened............................................... Plega

5. Antennal flagellomeres wider than long in frontal view ( Fig. 19 View FIGURE 19 b); mesoescutal furrow obsolete ( Fig. 20 View FIGURE 20 a); wings with anterior half pale or dark amber ( Fig. 20 View FIGURE 20 f); hindwing with transverse vein between CuA and AA ( Fig. 17 View FIGURE 17 e)............. Climaciella

- Antennal flagellomeres as broad as long in frontal view; mesoescutal furrow conspicuous ( Fig. 22 View FIGURE 22 e); wings usually almost completely hyaline; hindwing without transverse vein between CuA and AA...................................... 6

6. Pronotum with prominent setae over entire length in lateral view ( Hoffman 2002, Figs. 608, 609)...................... 7

- Pronotum with scattered fine setae in lateral view ( Fig. 22 View FIGURE 22 a; Hoffman 2002, Figs. 606, 607).......................... 8

- Body with a mixture of brown and yellow or ochre ( Fig. 23 View FIGURE 23 ); pronotum with setae arising flush with pronotal surface ( Hoffman 2002, Fig. 608)............................................................................ Leptomantispa

8. Head with inverted V-shaped mark directly beneath antennae ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 c); body coloration mottle, camouflage-like, consisting of green and brown ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 g); male ectoproct elongated, hypomeres long ( Machado & Rafael 2010, Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 e)............ Buyda
