For a long time, this group has been accepted as a family; but with the discovery of the genus Themonocoris Carayon, Usinger & Wygodzinsky 1958, the authors concluded it represents a point close to the origin of the phymatid bugs from the other reduvioids, and reduced the Phymatidae to a subfamily level.
These include species of Asilidae, Anthocoridae, Reduviidae, Phymatidae, Eucharitidae and Thomisidae.
