Pompiloidea is a superfamily that includes spider wasps and velvet ants, among others. in the order Hymenoptera. There are 4 families in Pompiloidea.[1][2][3]
Eusapyga verticalis

Families

These four families belong to the superfamily Pompiloidea:[3]

Mutillidae (velvet ants)
Myrmosidae (myrmosid wasps)
Pompilidae (spider wasps)
Sapygidae (sapygid wasps)

The extinct family Burmusculidae was formerly placed here, but has subsequently been moved along with the extinct family Panguidae into an extinct superfamily, Panguoidea.[4]
