The family Tajmyraphididae was originally described by E. L. Kononova (1975) from Taimyr amber (Taimyr Peninsula, Siberian, Russia). Initially, the family comprised four genera and seven species. In 1996, O.E. Heie extended the family including a new genus and species (Grassyaphis pikei Heie, 1996) from Canadian amber (Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada) and after describing two more new species (Lebanaphis minor Heie, 2000 and Megarostrum azari Heie, 2000) from Lebanese amber, he revised the family (Heie & Azar, 2000). In Heie’s new diagnosis the family was divided into five subfamilies, which later, in “A list of fossil aphids (Hemiptera, Sternorrhyncha, Aphidomorpha” (Heie & Wegierek, 2011), gained a family rank. In 2020, D. Żyła and P. Wegierek for the first time described the representatives of the family (three genera, seven species) from Khotont (Mongolia, Late Jurassic/Early Cretaceous) based on imprints. At present, the superfamily Tajmyraphidoidea Kononova, 1975 contains two families: Burmitaphididae and Tajmyraphididae. The latter is divided into three subfamilies: Lebanaphidinae, Mongolaphidinae and Tajmyraphidinae. The subfamily Tajmyraphidinae contains all the species described by Kononova from Taimyr amber. Currently the representatives of the family are known from both the Early and the Late Cretaceous.
