Lauxanioidea is a superfamily of flies that includes the two large families, the Lauxaniidae and Chamaemyiidae, and the small family Celyphidae. Generally they are small to medium, densely populated, coloured flies. Chamaemyiidae and Cremifaniidae live as parasites on insects. The family Celyphidae looks like beetles.
Some authors also recognize the family Cremifaniidae, but most place this in the Chamaemyiidae
