Psocodea Species File

Homilopscocidea is an infraorder of Psocodea (formerly Psocoptera).[1] It is probably a paraphyletic group, still in use for lack of a better solution. There are about 7 families and more than 1,200 described species in Homilopsocidea.[2][3][4]

These seven families belong to the infraorder Homilopsocidea:

Ectopsocidae Roesler, 1944 (outer barklice)
Elipsocidae Pearman, 1936 (damp barklice)
Lachesillidae Pearman, 1936 (fateful barklice)
Lesneiidae Schmidt & New, 2004
Mesopsocidae Pearman, 1936 (middle barklice)
Peripsocidae Roesler, 1944 (stout barklice)
Sabulopsocidae Schmidt & New, 2004
