The suprageneric classification of the order Entomobryomorpha (families Isotomidae, Tomoceridae, Oncopoduridae, Actaletidae, Coenaletidae, Paronellidae, Entomobryidae, Microfalculidae, Oncobryidae, and Praentomobryidae) is examined and revised. The families are placed in four superfamilies: Isotomoidea; Coenaletoidea, new status; Tomoceroidea; and Entomobryoidea. One new subfamily, Capbryinae, and two new tribes, Nothobryini and Bessionellini, are proposed. Entomobryoidea is examined in more detail at the level of subfamilies and tribes. The characteristics used for this classification are discussed and a scheme is presented. The rationale for the divisions used is discussed.
