Comments

In both mtg trees, this poorly supported monophyletic or paraphyletic family contains two strongly supported monophyla and one monotypic taxon which we rank as subfamilies: Euphyllurinae   , Liviinae   and Neophyllurinae   subfam. nov. There is no strong support for any particular sister group relationship, although in a backbone constraint analysis in Percy et al. (2018), Neophyllurinae   subfam. nov. grouped more strongly with Liviinae   than Euphyllurinae Crawford, 1914   . The family as defined here differs from that of Burckhardt & Ouvrard (2012) in that it lacks the Diaphorinini   (minus Megadicrania   and Psyllopsis   , which are included here in the Euphyllurinae   ). Adults of Liviidae   often have a crown of densely spaced apical spurs and immatures have multiple lanceolate or sectasetae.
