Subfamiliae incertae sedis: Afreminae – Lagrioidinae
Note: Afreminae, Ischaliinae & Lagrioidinae appear to have been placed without comment as subfamilies of Scraptiidae by Bouchard et al. (2011), but this was due to an unfortunate error whereby the heading 'Tenebrionoidea incertae sedis' was inadvertently omitted; this error was corrected in Bouchard & Bousquet (2020)
