Abstract

The familial placement of the often-confused genera Escalerina Bolívar y Pieltain and Paulusiella Löbl are established to be Dascillidae: Karumiinae and Elateridae incertae sedis, respectively. Escalerina is placed in synonymy with Karumia Escalera, new synonymy, as are Drilocephalus Pic, new synonymy, and Zarudniola Semenov and Martynov. Selasia sweihana Geisthardt is transferred to Paulusiella Löbl as Paulusiella sweihana (Geisthardt), new combination. The membership and history of the genera are reviewed.
