Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • amphibiotica In zoology, in Gegenbaur's system of classification, one of two subdivisions (the other being Corrodentia) of the Pseudoneuroptera. The Amphibiotica are composed of the May-flies, dragon-flies, and related forms. This suborder is, therefore, approximately equivalent to the Plecoptera (Perlidæ), Agnathi (Ephemeridæ), and Odonata (Agrionidæ, Æschnidæ, Libellulidæ) of other authors, generally considered as suborders of a conventional order Neuroptera.
