The paederine subtribe Procirrina is redescribed, the morphology, phylogenetic relationships, and distribution are discussed, and a key to the eight genera is presented. In the section on morphology, the female genital sclerites are discussed and terms are proposed for the fused sclerites. Neoprocirrus, Oedichirus, Oedodactylus, Palaminus, Paraprocirrus, Procirrus, and Pseudoprocirrus are redescribed and a list of the included species and examined species is included for each. Stylokyrtus, new genus, is described for Oedodactylus erransSharp, 1876, new combination. ParapalaminusBierig, 1943, ProcirrinusKoch, 1934, and OedichiranusReitter, 1906, described as subgenera, are new synonyms of Palaminus, Procirrus, and Oedichirus respectively. The sister group of Procirrina is Pinophilina. The basal genus of the Procirrina is Oedodactylus; Pseudoprocirrus is the sister group to the remainder of the genera, which are clustered in two clades. PalaminusOedichirus comprise one of the two clades with Paraprocirrus and ProcirrusNeoprocirrus as its sister. As Stylokyrtus is known by only one specimen, most of the characters important to phylogenetic placement of the genus were unavailable for study and its position within the subtribe is ambiguous.
