CommentSynonymy: The genus Platynotus has been revalidated by SCHMIDT & INGER 1951 and by VANZOLINI et al. 1980. However, RODRIGUES (1984) noted that Platynotus is pre-occupied by a genus in Coleoptera.

Type Species: Tapinurus scutipunctatus AMARAL 1933 is the type species of the genus Tapinurus AMARAL 1933. Agama semitaeniatus SPIX 1825 is the type species of the genus Platynotus WAGLER 1830.
