This paper provides a check list of Ohio Lampyridae. The species are listed in phylogenetic order and distribution records are given by counties. This study reveals 8 genera and 24 species recorded from Ohio. Pyropyga minuta LeConte is a new state distribution record. Examination of male genitalia of specimens of the genus Ellychnia LeConte clearly shows that E. corrusca (Linnaeus), E. autumnalis (Melsheimer), and E. lacustris LeConte should each be classified as a distinct species.
