The genus Hesus is a small one, containing only six species, all of them Neotropical. The genus ranges from Mexico and the Caribbean islands south to Brazil and Bolivia.
Heiss (2009) described Hesus humeralis from an Ecuador specimen. It is somewhat similar to H. cordatus, but has more angular humeri, and unicolorous legs and antennae. The cited article features a key and color photographs.
