Abstract: Inter-generic relationships of 11 genera of Paramormiine moth flies are demonstrated by a dendrograin on the basis of both plesiomorphous and synapomorphous characters; the validity of taxon Lepiseodina End., Iranotelmatoscopus Jez., as well as Karakovounimerus gen. n., which is described here, are proved. Following redescriptions of species are presented: Paramormia (s. str.) polyascoidea (Krek) – new to Austria and U.S.S.R. (Abkhazia), P. [Duckhousiella] ustulata (Walker) – new to Iran, Karakovounimerus sarai (Salamanna) comb. n. – new to Greece and Lepiseodina tristis (Meigen). Distinguishing notes, occurence, distribution and extents of studied taxons are added and all important diagnostic characters are figured. Several new additional combinations of generic and specific names are referred: Paramormia (Duokhoustella) corniculata (Vaillant) comb. n. and P. (D.) furcata (Kincaid) comb. n. from America, Lepiseotiina latipennts (Sara) comb. n. and L. rotttschildi (Eaton) comb. n. from Europe.
