The status of this subfamily is unsure. The Cicindelinae was in the past considered like a family (the Cicindelidae). Now, it's sure that they are a part of the Carabidae, but the subfamily status is unsure: many specialist now mostly consider them like a supertribe, the (Cicindelitae), in the subfamily Carabinae.
