Using external and internal adult morphology, clarification of status and determination keys are provided for Blepharida Chevrolat and the eight New World genera either related to it or placed near it in recent catalogues. The morphological reasons (e.g., pattern) for maintaining Blepharida and Notozona Chevrolat as separate genera are discussed. The Afrotropical genus Blepharidina Bechyné is lowered to subgenus status within the genus Blepharida in light of morphological similarities and differences with New World Blepharida. Blepharida haitiensis Blake is transferred to Acrocyum Jacoby. Morphological evidence (e.g., metatibial emargination, eye shape, and metafemoral spring shape) for placing the monotypic Euplectroscelis Crotch close to Blepharida is given. Blepharida franclemonti is described as a new species known to date only from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
