|Abstract:||A key is presented to distinguish the 44 recognized genera of the
Ophichthidae. Two new genera are described: Ethadophis, represented by E. byrnei
n, sp. (the genotype) and E. merenda n, sp., and Leuropharus (genotype L. lasiops
n. sp.). The following new generic synonymies are proposed: Omocbelys Fowler
1918 = Pisoodonophis Kaup, 1856; Hesperomyrus Myers and Storey, 1939 =
Myrophis Lutken, 1851; Cryptopterygium Ginsburg 1951 = Callechelys Kaup,
