Thirteen species of Taenionema are currently recognized. One species is known from Japan and the Soviet Far East, whereas twelve are North American in distribution. Descriptions and keys are given to adult males and females and a proposed phylogeny is presented. Four new species are named from western North America: T. jacobii, T. jewetti, T. uinta, and T. umatilla. Taenionema nigripenne (Banks) is synonymized under T. pallidum (Banks), and T. kincaidi (Hoppe) is recognized as a valid species.
