Family "Iridinidae"

Subfamily Iridininae
Subfamily Aspathariinae

The "Iridinidae" (40 spp.) is a long-recognized taxon, endemic to Afrotropica. The family has traditionally been divided among two subfamilies, and recent analyses have suggested that the "Iridinidae" is not monophyletic. While we wait for more data, we will continue to use this family name.
