MODERN STATUS:  the valid, the oldest monosemantic name of a generally accepted, holophyletic taxon; the same as Dermatoptera s.l.
Classification of Dermapteroidea:

Dermapteroidea, or Dermatoptera s.1 (sensu lato)

  † pm.Protelytroptera

  Brachydermaptera, or Dermatoptera s.2

    † pm.Archidermaptera

    Neodermaptera, or Dermatoptera s.3


      Holodermaptera, or Dermatoptera s.4 (sensu stricto)

Kluge 2010 BioNomina Dual-Nom :

Jeannel (1949) cited Dermapteroidea authorship as “Martynov 1925”. However, the name introduced by Martynov (1925) was Dermatopteroidea, not Dermapteroidea; at that time Protelytroptera had not been discovered yet, so the original circumscription of the name Dermatopteroidea Martynov 1925 non-monosemantically fits both Dermapteroidea Jeannel 1949 (which includes Protelytroptera) and Brachydermaptera (which excludes Protelytroptera).

The name Dermatoptera and its monosemantic circumscriptional synonyms Labidoura, Placoda, Euplekoptera, Euplexoptera, Dermoptera, Harmoptera, and Euplectoptera are non-monosemantic circumscriptional synonyms of the names Dermapteroidea, Brachydermaptera, Neodermaptera and Holodermaptera. On the other hand, the names Dermapteroidea, Brachydermaptera, Neodermaptera, and Holodermaptera are not circumscriptional synonyms and refer to an array of successively subordinated taxa.
