excluding homonyms, unnecessary replacement names, and unjustified emendations, which are listed separately. Three genera are removed here from the Mymaridae: Metanthemus Girault, 1928 is transferred to Aphelinidae, Allomymar Kieffer, 1913 probably belongs to the Aphelinidae but it’s type needs to be located to verify this placement, and Shillingsworthia Girault, 1920 is a hypothetical concept, excluded from zoological nomenclature. Enneagmus Yoshimoto, 1975, an extinct genus with 3-segmented tarsi, is transferred from Trichogrammatidae to Mymaridae. A summary of 19 familygroup names is provided.
