Palaeontinoids were comparatively large, cicada-like insects that existed from the Upper
Permian to the Middle Cretaceous (around 260.4 to 112.0 million years ago).

The three families classified under Palaeontinoidea, along with their age range and
collection sites, are the following:

 Mesogereonidae Tillyard, 1921
Upper Triassic; Australia and South Africa. Contains two monophyletic genera.[2]

 Dunstaniidae Tillyard, 1916
Upper Permian to Lower Jurassic; South Africa, Australia, France, Central Asia,
and China.[2][3]

 Palaeontinidae Handlirsch, 1906
Upper Triassic to Middle Cretaceous; Brazil, China, Russia, Germany,
the Transbaikal region, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Spain, Germ
any, and the United Kingdom. Contains around 30 to 40 genera and about a hundred
