Brannoch, S.K. & Svenson, G.J. 2016. A new genus and species (Cornucollis gen. n. masoalensis sp. n.) of praying mantis from northern Madagascar (Mantodea, Iridopterygidae, Tropidomantinae). ZooKeys 556: 65–81. DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.556.6906. Reference page.

Tropidomantinae is a subfamily of mantids in the new (2019) family Nanomantidae.[1] Within the single tribe Tropidomantini there are six genera, distributed in Asia and the Pacific.[2]
Tribes and Genera

The Mantodea Species File[2] lists two tribes:

tribe Epsomantini (monotypic)
Epsomantis Giglio-Tos, 1915 (monotypic)
tribe Tropidomantini
Eomantis Giglio-Tos, 1915
Oligocanthopus Beier, 1935 - monotypic O. ornata
Pliacanthopus Giglio-Tos, 1927
Sinomantis Beier, 1933 - monotypic S. denticulata
Tropidomantis Stal, 1877

NB: Several genera, previously placed here, have now been moved to the Fulciniinae, Hapalomantinae and Nanomantinae. Xanthomantis Giglio-Tos, 1915 is a synonym of Pliacanthopus (above).
