Journal/Book Name, Vol. No.:
Beckman (Orthoptera Species File Online, 2004) states that "Subfamily Dolichopodaine was created in this database as a consequence of the ICZN ruling that Dolichopoda- is the stem of Dolichopoda. Dolichopodainae has not been used in a publication." The ICZN ruling in question is Opinion 1998 (Case 3123), entitled "DOLICHOPODINI Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1888 (Insecta, Grylloptera): spelling emended to DOLICHOPODAINI, so removing the homonymy with DOLICHOPODIDAE Latreille, 1809 (Insecta, Diptera)" (Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, Volume 59, Part 2)

ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
