Subfamilies

Four subfamilies are placed here according to the Phasmid Study Group. The Lonchodinae, sometimes placed in the Diapheromeridae in older treatments, are here assigned to the other lineage of Anareolatae, the family Phasmatidae. The Palophinae are the smallest subfamily by far, and the Necrosciinae, while containing numerous genera and species, are not particularly diverse. The other two subfamilies, with 3 tribes each, contain the highest diversity of Diapheromeridae.[1]

The subfamilies are:[1]
