Family

Assamiidae


Sidaminae Roewer, 1935[1] is a subfamily of Assamiidae with 16 genera and 20 species. 2 genera are from India and the rest are Afrotropical. 

SynonymyEdit

  • Sidaminae Roewer 1935: 97; 1963: 486 [type genus: Sidama Pavesi, 1895].
  • Harsadiinae Roewer 1935: 43 [type genus: Harsadia Roewer, 1935].

Placement and compositionEdit

Sidaminae was originally created to include 11 Afrotropical genera, 4 of them new, the rest originally in Assamiinae. A few isolated genera were later added by Turk (1945a), Lawrence (1949, 1962) and Roewer (1961). Harsadiinae was originally created to include the two genera Argobba and Harsadia. Staręga (1992) synonymized both with Amhara, automatically placing Harsadiinae under the synonymy of Sidaminae. Turk (1945a) had described a third genus from India, which has not been mentioned again.
