Abstract: In this paper we review the endemic New Zealand cucujoid beetle family Cyclaxyridae, fam. nov., which includes only the genus Cyclaxyra Broun, 1893. One new species is described (Cyclaxyra jelineki sp. nov.) and one new synonymy is established (C. politula (Broun, 1881) = C. impressa Broun, 1915, syn. nov.), resulting in the recognition of two valid species in the family. Lectotype of C. politula is designated. Larvae are described and illustrated and phylogenetic relationships and biology are discussed.
