Trapezioidea is a superfamily of crabs. Its members live symbiotically with corals, and have a fossil record stretching back to the Eocene.[2]

The World Register of Marine Species lists the following families:[1]

Domeciidae Ortmann, 1893
Tetraliidae Castro, Ng & Ahyong, 2004
Trapeziidae Miers, 1886
