Comments

The monophyly of Psyllidae   is well (AN tree) or only moderately ( CC tree) supported in the molecular analyses. The two mtg trees share the same internal topology with most clades strongly supported ( Fig. 4 View Fig ). The composition of Psyllidae   proposed here differs from the Psyllidae   of Burckhardt & Ouvrard (2012) in the addition of Diaphorina   and Katacephala   (from Liviidae   , Euphyllurinae   ) as two distinct, basal clades, though inclusion of Diaphorina   in Psyllidae   requires further testing ( Percy et al. 2018). The molecular analyses further suggest that the subfamily Psyllinae   of Burckhardt & Ouvrard (2012) is polyphyletic. Here we remove Amorphicola   and Platycorypha   and assign them each to a new subfamily. An unnamed taxon from Madagascar, also warranting subfamily status, is not further treated here as it contains no described genus and species.
