Abstract

Characteristics of the morphology of antennae, head, abdomen, male genitalia, wing venation and thorax chaetotaxy have been used to study the systematic position of the genera Acropsilus Mik, 1878, and Euxiphocerus Parent, 1935. Tree-diagrams of the subfamilies Diaphorinae, Medeterinae, Peloropeodinae and Rhaphiinae based on morphological characteristics were constructed.
