Corynomalus Chevrolat   in Dejean, 1836: 439.

Type species: Corynomalus tarsatus Erichson, 1847   .

A Neotropical genus with 49 species distributed from southern México to South America   . Strohecker (1980) made a generic revision. A species from Costa Rica seems to feed on lichens. Tomaszewska (2005) provided a detailed generic description.

According to Bousquet (2004) the name Corynomalus   was first validated by Chevrolat (1836: 439) in the fifth release of Dejean's second edition of his catalogue and has priority over the widely used name Amphix Laporte (1840)   . Based on this argument, we include the single Mexican species in the genus Corynomalus   instead of Amphix   .
