A new genus and species, Adelphohemerobius enigmaramus, is described from Chile and assigned to a new subfamily, Adelphohemerobiinae, of the neuropterous family Hemerobiidae (brown lacewings). A cladistic analysis of morphological data derived from the unique female holotype of A. enigmaramus supports the conclusion that it represents the sister-group of the family Hemerobiidae sensu Oswald (1993a). The holotype of A. enigmaramus is interpreted to be the first non-teratological hemerobiid specimen known to possess a single 'radial sector', i.e., only the true ancestral Rs.
