EPILOHMANNIIDAE  Oudemans, 1923

The name Epilohmanniidae  was introduced by Oudemans in 1923 in order to replace the name Lesseriidae  (Oudemans, 1917), the generic name Lesseria  Oudemans (1917) being preoccupied by Epilohmannia  Berlese (1916). Just as the other Perlohmannoidea  , the Epilohmanniidae  must be considered an isolated family.

Jacot (1936a, p. 546) created a genus Epilohmannoides  (type: E. terrae  Jacot, l.c.), characterized e.g. by the fact that genital and anal openings are separated from each other by "a very narrow bar of the ventral plate" only; the diagnosis is, however, insufficient to draw definite conclusions as to the systematic position of the genus.
