Taxonomy

The consideration of Bruchidae as family derives from the fact that Chrysomeloidea does not include Cerambycidae, since such group is actually a superfamily (Cerambycoidea).
Therefore, Bruchidae can be considered a distinct family (with the only Chrysomelidae) inside of the superfamily Chrysomeloidea.
