The Neotropical genus Stenoscelidea Westwood, 1842 (Coreidae: Coreinae: Stenoscelideini) in its current wide concept is revised and divided into two genera: Stenoscelidea and Stenoeurilla gen. nov. The following eight new combinations (all from Stenoscelidea) are proposed: Stenoeurilla aenescens (Stål, 1870) comb. nov., S. glabra (Brailovsky, 1983) comb. nov., S. hansoni (Brailovsky & Barrera, 1997) comb. nov., S. maya (Brailovsky, 1983) comb. nov., S. mimica (Brailovsky, 1983) comb. nov., S. pellucida (Brailovsky & Barrera, 1997) comb. nov., S. peruviana (Brailovsky & Barrera, 1997) comb. nov., and S. prolixa (Brailovsky, 1983) comb. nov. Three new species are described: Stenoscelidea guanaya sp. nov. (Bolivia), Stenoscelidea saphes sp. nov. (Peru), and Stenoscelidea pucalpa sp. nov. (Peru). Stenoscelidea histrionica (Stål, 1859), is considered a synonym of S. albovaria Westwood, 1842. A key to the four known genera of Stenoscelideini, and a key to the 15 known species of Stenoscelidea (except Stenoscelidea nigroaenea Breddin, 1903), are given.
