Subfamily Kempyninae  Carpenter, 1943

Kempyninae  is apparently closely related to Stenosmylinae and its known distribution includes Australia, New Zealand, and the southern portion of South America ( New 1983a). This group comprises some of the largest members of Osmylidae ( Kimmins 1940)  . The first revisionary study of this subfamily (=Kalosmylinae) was made by Kimmins (1940), and New (1983a, 1986) carried out a revision on Australian fauna. Adams (1971) and Oswald (1994) described some additional South American species. Kempyninae  has some of presumed primitive features (adults has forewings with costal crossveins single and forewing MP forks near wing base, but after separation of MA from RS; hindwing has MA forks little sinuous and appearing as a basal crossvein to RS, CuP vein is long.
