The Neotropical genus Falsocaenia Pic, 1922 is revised. Two species Falsocaenia ecuadorensis sp. nov. and F. melanopteron sp. nov. are proposed as new to science. Idiopteron (F.) apicicorne (Pic, 1922) and Idiopteron (F.) aurantiacocostatum (Pic, 1932) are placed in the genus Falsocaenia, and consequently, Falsocaenia apicicornis (Pic, 1922) comb. n. and Falsocaenia aurantiacocostata (Pic, 1932) are proposed. Falsocaenia breveapicalis Pic, 1930 is considered to be a younger subjective synonym of Falsocaenia decipiens (Gorham, 1884) and Falsocaenia callangana (Pic, 1922) is synonymized to F. longehumeralis (Pic, 1922). Falsocaenia nigripenne Pic, 1934 is transferred to the genus Idiopteron and Idiopteron nigripenne (Pic, 1934) comb. n. is proposed. Simultaneously, lectotype of Falsocaenia aurantiacocostata is designated. Illustrations of diagnostic characters are included and a key to Falsocaenia species is given. (AU)
