Subfamily CHOLEVINAE Kirby  (= Catopinae  , Leptodirinae)

Cholevidae Kirby, 1837: 108  [stem: Cholev -]. Type genus: Choleva Latreille. 

Distribution: Worldwide.

Note 1: Jeannel (1936) offered the first extensive revision of the subfamily (as family at that time), which subdivisions were afterwards revised in several instances.

Note 2: Antunes-Carvalho et al. (2019) offer a phylogenetic analysis of the subfamily.

Note. Tribe LEPTODIRINI Lacordaire  , wrongly reported for the Neotropics: The genus Neotropospeonella Pace, 1985: 542  , 1987: 195 and the species N. decui Pace, 1985: 542  , 1987: 197 were described from Cueva del Guacharo, Caripe, Venezuela and placed in the tribe Lepdodirini Lacordaire  [1854 (1849)], where the subtribe Neotropospeonellina Perkovsky [1997]  was proposed. Perreau, 2003: 212, 216 synonymized this genus and species into Oryotus ravasinii Müller [1922]  , a troglobitic species of Italy, and recognized the Venezuelan record as an error based on a mislabelled specimen. Therefore, all these taxa do not occur in the Neotropics.
