Agnaridae is a family of woodlice. They were formerly considered part of the Trachelipodidae, but were moved from that family to Porcellionidae in 1989, and then placed as a separate family in 2003.[2] The family contains only two genera, Agnara Budde-Lund, 1908 and Pseudoagnara Taiti & Ferrara, 2004.[1]
