Twelve species in eight genera of the New World subfamily Larginae are discussed. The following species are redescribed and/or compared with their original descriptions: Acinocoris calidus (F.), A. decoratus Brailovsky and Barrera, A. includens Walker, A. lunaris (Gmelin), A. stehliki Van Doesburg, Astemma nigrocapitata Brailovsky and Barrera, Fibrenus bullatus White, Stenomacra marginella Herrich-Schaeffer, Therenais constricta Stål, and Vasarhelyecoris ophthalmicus Brailovsky and Barrerra. The measurements of the following species were compared with published measurements: Acinocoris calidus, A. decoratus, A. lunaris, A. stehliki, Astemma nigrocapitata, and Fibrenus bullatus. Instars of the following species are described: Largulus parallelus Hussey (third and fifth instars), and Thaumastaneis montandoni Kirkaldy and Edwards (fifth instar); the fifth instar of Largulus parallelus is figured. The following are new country records: Acinocoris elegans Van Doesburg: Peru; A. includens: Venezuela; A. lunaris: Bolivia; A. stehliki: Venezuela; Therenais constricta: Ecuador; and Thaumastaneis montandoni: Bolivia.
