From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Bousfield (1982, 1983) included Paracrangonyx, Dussartiella and Pseudingolfiella in the Paracrangonyctidae. The cladistic analysis of Koenemann & Holsinger (1999) indicated little affinity between these genera and here they are placed in separate monotypic family level groups. Fenwick (2001) accepts the monotypy of the Paracrangonyctidae. [details]
