We evaluate the geographical occurrence and the hosts of species of Aponychus, Paraponychus and Stylophoronychus. A distinct pattern could be observed, with two groups of species: a first group occurring in the Paleotropical region associated mainly with monocotyledons, and a second group in the Neotropics and North America, associated with dicotyledons. New hosts and records of A. chiavegatoi and A. schultzi are reported.
