Pinnotheres barbatus Desbonne, 1867, and Fabia unguifalcula Glassell, 1936, are included within Orthotheres. and O. rathbunae Schmitt, 1973, is reassigned to Pinnotheres. The generic status of P. laevis Bürger, 1895, and P. longipes Bürger, 1895, is analyzed and these species are retained to Pinnotheres. A complete diagnosis of the genus Orthotheres is given.
