C. Glyptosterninae Gill, 1872  , Pseudecheneidina de Pinna, 1996 

Pseudecheneis  ZBK  , the only genus in this clade, is easily distinguished from other clades of Sisoridae  by having an adhesive apparatus on the thorax with grooves transverse to the longitudinal axis of the body. Osteological traits used by de Pinna (1996) to diagnose Pseudecheneidina  include endopterygoid surrounding metapterygoid dorsally, sphenotic not contacting supraoccipital, first epibranchial expanded anteriorly, and dorsal expansion on first pleural rib.
