Classification of the Caliscelidae

Caliscelidae Amyot & Audinet-Serville, 1843

The Caliscelidae were elevated from a subfamily of Issidae to a family by Emeljanov (1999). Subsequent phylogenetic analyses supports Caliscelidae as an independent family (e.g., Yang & Chang 2000, Yeh et al. 2005, Urban and Cryan 2007, Wang et al. 2016). The only phylogenetic treatment of the family was that of Catanach (2013), which was based on 29 morphospecies and found Caliscelidae to be monophyletic (albeit weakly) and  was found to have originated approximately 80 MYA.  The higher classification is principally that of Gnezdilov (2013).  Gnezdilov (2015b) noted two main evolutionary trends – brachyptery and neoteny – in Caliscelidae, and that the origin of the family may be in southeast Asia (although Catanach 2013 and Catanach  & Dietrich 2017 suggested Ethiopian).  An expanded family diagnosis and elaboration of tribal features were provided by Gnezdilov and Wilson (2006), the family appears to still be incompletely circumscribed.
