The present work deals with the Myrmeleontoidea fauna of China, which is a lacewing superfamily. Included are a historic review of classification and taxonomic systems, morphology, faunal analysis and biology of the four families. In the taxonomic section, 4 families, 44 genera and 151 species of Myrmeleontoidea from China are recognized, including Myrmeleontidae: 2 subfamilies, 6 tribes, 31 genera, 116 species; Ascalaphidae: 2 subfamilies, 11 genera, 29 species; Psychopsidae: 1 genus, 5 species; and Nemopteridae: 1 genus, 1 species. Most of them are described or re-described. Some species, which were recorded from China by previous researchers have not been found in China yet, have not been examined. For these species we give the information about them, but don't provide descriptions. Keys to the families and subfamilies, and keys to the Chinese tribes, genera and species of the four families of Myrmeleontoidea are presented.
