scientific name

Diaphorininae Vondráček, 1951
status

 

Subfamily * Diaphorininae Vondráček, 1951  

Comments

The AN tree (but not the CC tree) shows reasonably strong support for a sister group relationship of Diaphorina   to the remainder of Psyllidae   , and, as noted earlier, reduced taxon nuclear genome and combined data analyses by Percy et al. (2018) place Diaphorina   outside Psyllidae   and sister to Triozidae   . Increased taxon sampling and more analyses are required to robustly resolve this ambiguity, and therefore erection of a separate family is currently rejected in favour of inclusion in Psyllidae   at this time. Based on the morphology of head, forewings and male terminalia we consider Parapsylla   the sister group of Diaphorina   and include it in the Diaphorininae   .

Included genera

* Diaphorina Löw, 1880   (replacement name for Diaphora Löw   nec Stephens, syn. Brachypsylla   , Gonanoplicus   , Pennavena   , Eudiaphorina   ); Parapsylla Heslop-Harrison, 1961   (syn. Agmapsylla   ).
