Family Anthroleucosomatidae Verhoeff 1899

At the present time it is not possible to present a concise diagnosis of this family, the compositon of which will undoubtedly change with further study. See the discussion of relationships following the description for hypotheses on the placement of our new taxon. A list of included genera may be found in Hoffman (1980); Anthroleucosomatidae sensu Shear (2000) is made up only of those genera Hoffman places in the subfamily Anthroleucosomatinae.
