- Moriosomus seticollis
- Moriosomus sylvestris
The genus includes two species from the Neotropical region. The two species were treated by Straneo (1985). Individuals are generally found in rotten logs.
Separable from all other Morionini by the combination of robust body-form, pronotum with lateral margins rounded to near the base but with a short, distinct sinuation just in front of the hind angle, anterior margin of the labrum nearly straight and simple, median tooth of the mentum acutely formed.
