From editor or global species database
Authority As noted by Rouse & Pleijel (2001) the author of the first usage as a family should be Kinberg (1856), not Malmgren (1867). Kinberg used Family "Sigalionina" [sic] based on Sigalion and included Sthenelais and Sigalion. Malmgren (1867: 16) used the corrected spelling "Sigalionidae" which he indicated "= Sigalionina et Pholoina Knbg". [details]

Synonymy includes former separated families Peisidicidae (aka Pholoididae), and Pisionidae (a potential subfamily of Sigalionidae, but yet to be proposed/formalised as such), and may include Pholoidae (also a potential subfamily). [details]
