The family Aphalaridae in Egypt is revised. Eight species in five genera and two subfamilies are treated, namely Blastopsylla occidentalisTaylor, 1985 (Spondyliaspidinae), Brachystetha nitrariaeLoginova, 1964, Caillardia dilatataLoginova, 1978, Colposcenia aliena (Löw, 1881), Colposcenia elegans (De Bergevin, 1932), Colposcenia tamaricis (Puton, 1871), Crastina heslopharisonii (Samy, 1972), and Crastina linnavuoriiLoginova, 1974 (Aphalarinae). The genus BrachystethaLoginova, 1964 is recorded here for the first time in Egypt with a single species Brachystetha nitrariaeLoginova, 1964, recently collected from Hurghada (Red Sea Governorate). An illustrated key to the Egyptian genera, and diagnoses for the recorded taxa are also given.
