The subfamily Mydinae is exclusively American and is here divided in 4 tribes: Dolichogasterini, new (only genus, Dolichogaster Macquart); Messiasiini, new (only genus, Messiasia d'Andretta); Phyllomydini, new (only genus, Phyllomydas Bigot); and Mydini Latreille (with 3 genera: Mydas Fabricius; Ceriomydas Williston; and Mapinguari, gen. n., for Mydas politus Wiedemann, from Amazonia). Ceriomydas Williston is redefined, and several species transferred to it: its present composition is the following: 1. brederi (Curran 1951, Bahamas); 2. crassipes (Westwood, 1841; Brazil: Esp{\'ırito Santo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo); 3. cubanus (Curran, 1951; Cuba); 4. darlingtoni, sp. n. (Dominican Republic); 5. fraudulentus Williston, 1898 (Brazil: Mato Grosso); 6. gracilis (Macquart, 1834; Cuba); 7.? tricolor (Wiedemann, 1830; Cuba); 8. vespiodes, sp. n. (Brazil: São Paulo).
