Tribe * Spondyliaspidini   Schwarz, 1898

Comments

The mtg analyses strongly support the monophyly of a group of ten genera which lack, in the adult, a longitudinal comb of bristles on the mesotibia and a proper meracanthus. The latter character probably constitutes a synapomorphy. Within the tribe there is a strong support for a clade embracing Australopsylla   , Cardiaspina   , Creiis   , Glycaspis   and Lasiopsylla   and the sister group relationship of Anoeconeossa   and Cryptoneossa   . The sister group relationship of Creiis   and Lasiopsylla   (as currently defined) is only weakly supported with Creiis   paraphyletic with respect to Lasiopsylla   . The two genera differ morphologically only in the shape of the forewing. There are another 11 genera which are not included in the molecular analyses.
