Genus Diapterobates Grandjean, 1936  

Remarks: Diapterobates   was included in Humerobatidae   by Subías (2004), without explanation. We retain Diapterobates   in Ceratozetidae   , based on morphology of its immatures ( Behan-Pelletier 1986), which is unlike that of Humerobates ( Grandjean 1970)   .
