Euembia Verhoeff 1904  , type species.

The name Euembia  was erected as a subgenus of Embia Latreille 1929  to include those species of Embia  with males bearing wings (at that time excluding Embia (Haploembia) solieri Rambur 1942  ) ( Verhoeff 1904). Verhoeff did not, however, designate a type species. He included 12 species of Embioptera  in Euembia  including those from numerous different currently recognized genera. Euembia  has been regarded as a subjective synonym of Embia  since soon after it was first recognized ( Enderlein 1909; 1912). Therefore, in the interest of selecting a type species best reflecting the historical interpretation of Embia Latreille 1925  , I hereby designate as type species of Euembia Verhoeff 1904  the species Embia savignii Westwood 1837  (new type designation).
