A taxonomic superfamily.
The Superfamily Entomobryoidea is further organized into finer groupings including:
The family Entomobryidae contains the so-called "slender springtails", a group of springtails characterised as having an enlarged fourth abdominal segment and a well-developed furcula. Species in this family may be heavily scaled and can be very colorful. The scale-less Entomobryas are commonly caught in pitfall traps around the planet, and also occur in canopy faunas high up in trees (notably , very common throughout Europe if not the northern hemisphere).
