Abstract

The taxonomic position of Protopenthalodes Jesionowska is reviewed. It does not belong to the family. Penthalodidae, as suggested by the original author, but shares many characteristics of the Eupodidae and some of Penthaleidae. It is suggested that it is more appropriate to place it in the Eupodidae for the time being until a comprehensive study on the Eupodoidea is carried out.
