The Subfamily Cicindelinae is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Genus (15): Amblycheila · Cicindela · Cylindera · Dromochorus · Guineica · Leptognatha · Mantichora · Megacephala · Omus · Polyrhanis · Prothyma · Tetracha · Therates · Thopeutica · Tricondyla
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 846 species and subspecies in the Subfamily Cicindelinae.
Amblycheila is a genus of flightless, nocturnal tiger beetles. There are at least five species occurring sparsely over much of the central and western United States, and with a few more species found southwards into Mexico. [more]
Cicindela are generally brightly colored and metallic beetles, often with some sort of patterning of ivory or cream-colored markings. They are most abundant and diverse in habitats with sandy soil (though some prefer clay), and very often near bodies of water, even if seasonally transient; along river, sea and lake shores, on sand dunes, around playa lakebeds and on clay banks or woodland paths.

Omus is a genus of , subfamily Cicindelinae. Its members are dark colored, nocturnal, and flightless. All members occur along the west coast of North America. [more]
Thopeutica is a genus of beetles in the family Carabidae, containing the following species: [more]
At least 16 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Tricondyla.
