This first part of the review of the Chilean Brachyglutini is devoted to analyzing the taxonomic situation within the tribe and some taxonomic changes are proposed: 1. The subtribe Baradina nominally remains a part of Brachyglutini; 2. Based on the presence of median gular longitudinal elevation laterally delimited by a pair of sutures in Brachyglutina (apomorphy which characterizes the subtribe) the following genera are transferred to Brachyglutina: A) Mangalobythus Tanokuchi from Bythinini; b) Sogaella Jeannel from Iniocyphini; c) Arachis Raffray, Diroptrus Motschulsky, and Obricala Raffray from Brachyglutini incertae sedis (Newton & Chandler, 1989); and also Berlaraxis Jeannel and Araneabaxis Chandler are transferred from Brachyglutini to Iniocyphini subtribe Iniocyphina; 3. Based on the presence of two long, longitudinal lateral carinae on the metathorax the subtribe Pselaptina is reestablished (stat. resurr.). A preliminary diagnosis of Achilia Reitter is also given.

The species belonging to the Tychus algericus group are revised and the group is characterized. Four species are recognized, described and illustrated, and a key for identification is provided. One species is new to science: T. similis Besuchet, sp. n. from Algeria, while three taxa: T. algericus Guillebeau, 1893 from Tunisia and Algeria, T. depexus Peyerimhoff, 1905 from Algeria, and T. vaucheri Jeannel, 1956 from Morocco are redescribed and their affinities and geographic distribution discussed. The lectotype for Tychus depexus is here designated. Copyright © 2011, Magnolia Press.
