Superfamily SPHECOIDEA Based primarily on a study of larvae, H. E. Evans (Ent. News 75: 225237, 1964) proposed recognizing only the single family Sphecidae in this superfamily. He suggested regrouping the sphecoid wasps into the following eight subfamilies:

Ampulicinae (= Ampulicidae of Catalog)
Sphecinae (= Sphecinae of Catalog)
Larrinae ( = Larrinae, Trypoxyloninae and Crabroninae of Catalog)
Mellininae (= Mellinini of Catalog)
Pemphredoninae (= Pemphredoninae of Catalog)
Astatinae (= Astatinae of Catalog)
Philanthinae (= Philanthinae of Catalog)
Nyssoninae (= Nyssoninae of Catalog less Mellinini)
