Diphlebiidae is no longer recognised as a biological family.[1] It was the name given to a small family of damselflies, the azure damselflies, with species in two genera: Diphlebia and Philoganga.[2] Diphlebia is found in Australia[3] 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:
