Gaetan --

You've hit on most of the "mainstream" Neo-Prog bands ....... there aren't many more active that have more than one / two discs out there....... a few more bands and you will have to start hitting on side projects of the bands you've already checked out ...... you also will have to go back in time and hit on some of the older / extinct bands, but now the hunt is on ....... All of my CDs are in boxes, so I'll dig them out and see what Neo is left for you to check out .....

In the meantime --- you need to check out:

Airbag
Bjorn Reis
Landmarq (with and without Damian Wilson)
Everon
I/O Earth (more prog rock than Neo-Prog but awesome)
Knight Area (same as I/O Earth)

Clive Nolan is one of the most prominent dudes in Neo-Prog, and he has had a slew of side bands / projects released you might want to check out ... for instance, you already hit on Shadowland, try to find:

Strangers on a Train
Clive Nolan & Oliver Wakeman (Jabberwocky, The Hounds of Baskervilles)
Caamora
Alchemy

In the meantime, I'll email you.........

I'm not the neo-prog expert that Larry is, but how about Evership? Prog Archives does classify them as neo-prog, so hopefully they fit.

Nexus and Solaris are not neo-prog by any stretch of the imagination.

YES on Jadis -- forgot about that long running band ...... I was never a big fan although I've owned several of their CDs over the years ........

Also - yes on Evership although it's hard for me to classify them as Neo-Prog ...... lots of these bands have crossover appeal, with a lot of them leaning towards Prog Rock (ie, IQ)........

Frost
Cyan
Collage
Believe
Clepsydra
Chandelier
Flamborough Head
GRey Lady Down
Tracy Hitchings
Invertigo

Gaetan = there are so many Neo-Prog bands out there, but a lot of the older ones have gone by the wayside and no longer exist.......... if you go here, to this link, you will find a huge list of the Neo-Prog bands, of today and yesteryear......... many are gone as I said, but some remain .... it will give you a good idea of just how many are and were out there........happy hunting.
