A checklist of ‘Psocoptera’ (Psocodea) from Brazil: an update to the list of 2009 of García Aldrete and Mockford, with an identification key to the families
The described species of Psocoptera currently known for Brazil are listed, with state distribution and biogeographic status. An identification key to the families recorded in Brazil is presented.
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.


Elaphopsocoides, a new genus of Psocidae (Psocodea: ´Psocoptera´) from Valle del Cauca, Colombia.
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

A pair of new sister species of Loneura (Psocodea, ‘Psocoptera’, Ptiloneuridae) from Valle del Cauca, Colombia, representing a new infrageneric group
Two sister species of Loneura constitute a new species group that modifies the scheme of classification, proposed earlier for the genus by García Aldrete et al. (2011b) by having the central sclerite of the male hypandrium with four posterior projections.
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.
