We describe a new fossil dragonfly Permophlebia uralica, gen. n., sp. n. that we attribute to a new family Permophlebiidae. Several Permo-Triassic odonate taxa are redescribed, viz. the taxa of the family Triadotypidae, and the genera Kargalotypus Rohdendorf, 1962, and Liadotypus Martynov, 1937. Their phylogenetic positions are discussed, and some earlier taxonomic decisions re-evaluated. The Piroutetiidae Nel, 1989 is transferred in the Triadophlebiomorpha, superfamily undetermined sit. novo The Kargalotypidae Zessin, 1983 is tranferred in the Triadophlebiomorpha: Zygophlebiida sit. novo The Liadotypidae Grauvogel & Laurentiaux, 1952 (non Martynov, 1937) is transferred in the Isophlebiida sit. novo family incenae sedis stat. novo The c1adistic analysis of the Zygophlebiida (new clade ) is proposed.
