The Anajapygidae are a small family of diplurans. They can be distinguished by their relatively short, stout cerci, which discharge abdominal secretions. Unlike most diplurans, which are largely predatory, these are scavengers.

The family Anajapygidae contains two genera, with eight recognized species:

  • Genus Anajapyx Silvestri, 1903
