The Phylloxeroidea is a small superfamily of the Hemiptera closely related to the aphids, and often traditionally included in the Aphidoidea, which is the sister taxon. The two extant families are the pine and spruce aphids (Adelgidae, including the former family Chermesidae, or "Chermidae") and the phylloxerans (Phylloxeridae), including Vine Phylloxera, a serious pest of grapes.
