groups of supergroups of genera: pending; supergroups of genera : HYLLOIDA; groups of genera: HYLLINES;

Comments: Rather "nomen nudum", due to unusual error: two different species (one apparently Plexippoides, other "Pseudicius") described and illustrated as Helicius kimjoopili Kim, 1995, in two versions of seemingly the same publication (journal, title, number ).

Distribution: Asia; Japan; Korea.
