Two new species of Elaphopsocoides n. gen. from Valle del Cauca, Colombia, are here described and illustrated. The new genus is related to Elaphopsocus Roesler, but differs from it mostly in the hypandrial projections and in phallosome structure. The female subgenital plate has a distinct, median, posterior projection. The types are deposited in the Entomology Museum, Universidad del Valle (MUSENUV), Santiago de Cali, Colombia.

Checklist of ‘Psocoptera’ (Psocodea) of Colombia and identification key to the families
It is shown that the group diversity is still to be uncovered in the country and further studies must be conducted to understand the distribution of psocids among and within localities, and that additional extensive fieldwork is highly required.
Decolonizing Psocopteran Systematics: Holarctic Lineages Cannot Inform Diversity and Evolution in Tropics
Leveraging the largest phylogeny of the Psocidae, this study pinpoints the downfalls of simply extending taxonomic knowledge from lineages of a certain area to inform diversity and evolution of lineages in other regions.


Kaindipsocinae is a sister taxon to the rest of Psocidae (Insecta:Psocodea:'Psocoptera')
Both morphological and Molecular data provide strong support for monophyly of Kaindipsocinae and molecular data support a sister relationship between this subfamily and the rest of Psocidae.
