Iridopterygidae was a family of praying mantids in the order Mantodea whose members, having formerly been moved here as a subfamily within Mantidae,[1] have now been transferred elsewhere as part of the recent (2019) major revision of mantid taxonomy.[2]
Former subfamilies

Hapalomantinae: moved to new family Nanomantidae
Iridopteryginae: now consists of two tribes in the Gonypetidae[3]
Nanomantinae: now in new family Nanomantidae contained:
Tribe Fulcinini
Tribe Nanomantini
Nilomantinae: now a tribe of Hapalomantinae
Tropidomantinae: previously containing a single tribe, the Tropidomantini[4]
genera previously placed incertae sedis here are now the Tropidomantinae.
