Sixty-seven species of 69 that have been recorded in the northwestern region of Mexico are commented. These species belong to the genera: Ankonophallus Zaragoza-Caballero y Navarrete-Heredia, 2014 (2), Aspisoma Laporte, 1833 (4), Aspisomoides Zaragoza-Caballero, 1995 (2), Bicellonycha Motschulsky, 1853 (5), Chespirito Ferreira, Keller y Branham, 2020 (1), Cratomorphus Motschulsky, 1853 (3), Microphotus LeConte, 1866 (7), Nelsonphotus Cicero,2006 (1), Paracratomorphus Zaragoza-Caballero, 2013 (1), Photinoides McDermott, 1963 (1), Photinus Laporte, 1833 (25), Photuris Dejean, 1833 (2), Pleotomus LeConte, 1861 (3), Prolutacea Cicero, 2006 (1), Pterotus LeConte, 1859 (1), Pyractomena Melsheimer, 1846 (1), Pyropyga Motschulsky, 1852 (8) and Tenaspis LeConte, 1881(1). Additionally, 48 new species belonging to Photinus are described and illustrated, one of them is the first species described from Zacatecas. Two keys are presented, one to segregate the genera of Lampyridae, the other to identify the species of Photinus present in the region. Moreover, new state records are reported. Mexico is recognized as a diversification center of the genera Photinus.
