dc.description.abstract "A new genus, Chernodes, is described for a new Chilean species, C. australis, that is closely related to the Australian and Tasmanian genera Sternodes Butler and Carathea Moran. These three genera are hypothesized to represent the sister-group of the Malkarinae, known only from Australia and new Zealand, and the family Sternodidae Moran is therefore relegated to subfamilial status within the Malkaridae. The enlarged Malkaridae is tentatively treated as the sister-group of the Mimetidae, but could prove to represent only a highly autapomorphic subgroup of that family"--P. [1]. en_US
