Abstract. There is suggested a new phylogenetic classification of the taxa, which in various non-phylogenetic ranking classifications can be named by a common name “subfamily Atalophlebiinae”; there are established new family-group taxa Calliarcyinae, Terpidinae and Castanophlebiinae subfam.n. and new taxa with non-typified circumscriptional names Atalophleboadentata, Atalophlebopectinata, Atalophleboculata, Atalophlebomaxillata and Atalophlebolinguata taxa n. Diagnosis of Terpides (= Fittkaulus syn.n., = Tikuna syn.n.) is revised. Basing on material collected by the author in Peruvian Amazonia, there are described three new species: Terpides (Fittkaulus) amazonicus sp.n. (as larvae and imagoes reared from larvae), Terpides (Tikuna) nigrobulla sp.n. (as larvae and male subimago reared from larva) and Terpides (Tikuna) fusconotum sp.n. (as male imago reared from subimago). Some larval characters for Terpides (Tikuna) bilineata are described for the first time. The species from Costa Rica, determined by Savage et al. [2005] as “Tikuna atramentum”, probably represents a new species, which here is discussed under an arbitrary name “Terpides (Tikuna) sp. SFP.
