  Comment: Schmidt-Rhaesa (2002) notes, "If superareoles are takens as the only valid character for Parachordodes, the species number is reduced from 18 to 11"  
    Bleidorn et al. (2002) reject the parent taxon Parachordodinae based on evidence of paraphyly but do not assign the contained genera to a different subfamily
