Blacini Foerster, 1863 


Generally considered to be a distinct subfamily but Sharanowski et al. (2011) found that the blacines nested within the Brachistinae  in their molecular phylogenetic analyses. We think it likely that these results will be upheld with further phylogenetic work and follow Sharanowski et al.'s recommended changes to the subfamily classification. Distribution and taxonomic data from Achterberg (1988a), with additional references given. Note that Tobias (1986) records B. (Neoblacus) koenigi  Fischer, 1967 from England but there is no evidence that this species occurs here.
