Opiinae Blanchard, 1845 


The generic and tribal classification of opiines has been largely chaotic ( Wharton 1988b). In Fauna Europaea, van Achterberg has enacted many taxonomic changes resulting from his work on Western Palaearctic Opiinae  (in prep.), which are followed here. Some changes to the generic classification have been published by Wharton (1988b), van Achterberg ( Achterberg 2004a, Achterberg 2004b, and in Belokobylskij et al. 2003) and by Li et al. (2013). Wharton (1988b) argued against recognition of tribes within Opiinae  , except perhaps Ademonini  (for the genus Ademon  ), with all the other genera in Opiini  ; van Achterberg (in prep.) does not recognise Ademonini  . Some distribution data from Fischer (1958), Fischer (1967), Fischer (1997).
