  Family (biology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In biological classification, family (Latin: familia, plural familiae) is 1) a rank or 2) a taxon in that rank.
Family, as a rank intermediate between order and genus, is a relatively recent invention.
In zoology, the family as a rank intermediate between order and genus was introduced by Pierre André Latreille in his Précis des caractères génériques des insectes, disposés dans un ordre naturel (1796).
