Diphlebiidae is no longer recognised as a biological family. It was the name given to a small family of damselflies, the azure damselflies, with species in two genera: Diphlebia and Philoganga. Diphlebia is found in Australia and Philoganga is found in Southeast Asia. They are large and thick-bodied damselflies. They rest with their wings spread out. The Diphlebiidae were also known as Philogangidae.
Diphlebiidae is now split:
- The genus Diphlebia is now considered to belong to the family Lestoideidae.
- The genus Philoganga is now considered to belong to the family Philogangidae.
