A phylogeny of the Tenebrionidae subfamily Pimeliinae was reconstructed based on 420 taxa and 629 genetic loci from 33 of the 38 pimeliine tribes. The majority of represented tribes were recovered as monophyletic, with a few interesting exceptions. Pimeliinae as a whole was recovered as non-monophyletic, though further analyses with additional outgroup taxa are needed to confirm this finding. Additional revisionary work at the generic level is clearly needed within several species-rich tribes (ex. Asidini, Adesmiini, Edrotini, Sepidiini).
