Family-Group Names of the Pompilidae
(odified from Day, 1981)


Ageniellini (tribe of Pepsinae)
Ageniinae Ashmead, 1900: 154. Type-genus: Agenia Schiedte, 1837. Unavailable; based on a junior homonym of Agenia Dezcourtilz, 1825.

Paraferreolini (tribe of Mutillidae)
Paraferreolini Haupt, 1949: 65, 73. Type-genus: Paraferreola Šustera, 1912.] Paraferreola Šustera is based on a misidentified type-species and should be applied in the Mutillidae.
