The genus Apachekolos is easily distinguished from other Leptogastrinae by the very long and slender hind legs that bear short, strong macrosetae. It is similar in a number of features to the Old World genus Mesoleptogaster. The male and female terminalia are also quite distinct. So far, 11 species are known to science.
The genus Apachekolos is restricted to the New World and primarily occurs in North America and the Caribbean. The highest species diversity is found in the western USA and the Dominican Republic.
