Examination and dissection of type specimens of Corylophidae resulted in three generic synonomies: Holopsis Broun (=Bathona Casey), Ectinocephalus Matthews (=Conodes Matthews), Gloeosoma Wollaston (=Gronevus Casey), new synonyms. The corylophid species Microstagetus parvulus Wollaston is reported for the first time in North America. Synonomy of the cryptophagid genus Scytomaria Lyubarsky with Anitamaria Leschen, new synonymy, is proposed and the proliferation of higher taxon names in Cryptophagidae by Ljubarsky (1998b) is determined to be unnecessary.
