The name has been rendered alternately as Pediaspini   and Pediaspidini   in literature. Pediaspidini   is the linguistically correct, and there is no prevailing usage that speaks for the other option. This tribe of Palearctic species gall Acer spp.   Himalocynips   (biology unknown) was originally described in its own family ( Yoshimoto 1970).

Biology. Gall inducers on maple trees ( Acer spp   ; Sapindaceae   ).

Distribution. Palearctic Region. Himalocynips   only known from Nepal ( Yoshimoto 1970).

Relevant literature. Ronquist (1995b) suggested the inclusion of Himalocynips   within Pediaspidini   , and has been followed since.
