The nematoceran infraorder Psychodomorpha (sometimes misspelled Psychomorpha - which is also the name of a genus of noctuid moths) includes two common families, Psychodidae and Scatopsidae, and other very small, rare families. In some classifications (e.g. the Tree of Life Web Project), the group is paraphyletic.
