"The subfamily Blissinae is defined and the following aspects treated: a historical review, a summary of the biology and feeding habits, a checklist of world species, and an analysis of characters of taxonomic and phylogenetic importance. A proposed phylogeny is presented with cladograms. The distribution of the taxa is discussed and an interpretation is given. Keys are included for adults of all genera and species of the world, and for fifth instar nymphs of all species for which they are known. A diagnosis is given for each genus as well as its original reference, synonymy, type species, and general distribution. A figure is included for at least one species of each genus as well as 170 figures of anatomical details and 19 diagrams showing phylogenetic relationships. Slaterellinae Drake and Davis is placed as a junior synonym of Blissinae. Blissus navis Slater is transferred to Capodemus, Macropes tinctus Distant to Cavelerius, and Dimorphopterus aleocharoides Jakovlev to Ischnodemus. Neoblissus Bergroth is placed as a junior synonym of Blissus Burmeister. Pseudoblissus is erected as a new genus to contain Blissus trispinosus Slater"--P. 5.
