Familia Thyreocoridae Amyot & Serville, 1843

The type genus of the family was misidentified by Amyot & Serville (1843). The case has to be referred to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature for a ruling. Eucoria marginipennis Mulsant & Rey, 1865, described from France (Marseille, 1male) proved to be a junior synonym of the Nearctic Corimelaena pulicaria (Germar, 1839) (see Sailer, 1945: 131). It was accidentally introduced into France. Records of this species from Portugal and Spain (Vidal, 1950) were erroneous.

Extralimital subfamily: Corimelaeninae Uhler, 1872, New World.
