Following Belshaw and Quicke (2002), Achterberg (2003a) and Belokobylskij et al. (2003) we treat the Brachistinae  as a subfamily separate from Helconinae  . Sharanowski et al. (2011) expanded the limits of the Brachistinae  by including the tribe Diospilini  and the former subfamily Blacinae  (as well as the extralimital Brulleiini  ). The tribes employed here are those that have been used in previous classifications under the former subfamilies, but the tribal classification remains essentially untested.
