The Rhyparochromidae are a large family of true bugs (order Hemiptera), many of which are commonly referred to as seed bugs. The family includes two subfamilies, 368 genera, and over 1,800 species.
Rhyparochromidae are small and generally brown or mottled. The fore femora are often enlarged.
The name Rhyparochromidae comes from the Greek words rhyparos, meaning "dirt", and chromus, meaning "color".
The Rhyparochromidae were previously classified as a subfamily of Lygaeidae.
