Introduction

This small family is found in tropical Africa and Madagascar. Ross (1967) was the first to consider this group a family. It contains 2 genera, Pisulia Marlier (6 species) and Silvatares Navás (10 species); the latter was originally described in Calamoceratidae. Stoltze (1989) revised the family in its entirety. Larvae construct cases of leaf and wood pieces. Pisulia larvae occupy hygropetric habitats; Silvatares larvae are found in small streams. Larvae are detritivorous shredders.
