Chrysopodes is a genus of green lacewings found from southern North America (Florida and Mexico) to Argentina. It is defined by features of the male genitalia, namely the lack of a tignum and gonapsis, and presence of gonarcus with arcessus reduced to a curved, triangular, apically tapered sclerite. Within the genus, the subgenus Chrysopodes has long and scythe-like mandibles (Freitas & Penny 2001).
