Subfamily Pseudoneureclipsinae Ulmer

Only the genus Pseudoneureclipsis Ulmer belongs to this subfamily.

Genus Pseudoneureclipsis Ulmer

Morita (1996) recorded an unidentified species belonging to this genus from central Honshu, and provided illustrations of the male genitalia. Nozaki and Nakamura (2002) recognized two species including Morita's species from western Honshu. On the other hand, Tanida (1997b) recorded an unidentified species from Okinawa-jima. It need to study their specific status.
