Zethus is a very large, mainly neotropical genus of potter wasps with some species representation also in the Nearctic, Afrotropical, Australian and Indomalayan regions.

The genus is subdivided into a few subgenera which nevertheless need a phylogenetic analysis in order to recognize their natural limits.

See the separate list of Zethus species.
