(Hylicellidae) along with Homopterites Handlirsch, 1906 from the uppermost Triassic of England and Liassocercopis Ansorge, 1996 from the Lower Jurassic of Germany. Purbecellus gen.n. is proposed for Cicadellium psocus Westwood, 1854 (= Cercopidium telesphorus Westwood, 1854): Purbecellus psocus (Westwood, 1854), comb.n. (Archijassidae: Karajassinae).
