The species of Nemomydas Curran occurring in the southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central America are reviewed. Thirteen species are recognized, including two new species, N. fronki n. sp. and N. wendyae n. sp. The males of N. brachyrhynchus (Osten Sacken) and N. sponsor (Osten Sacken) are described for the first time, N. fumosus Hardy is elevated to a full species, and N. panamensis (Curran) is considered a nomen dubium. A key to the males is provided.
