The generic diagnosis and the description of Postopsyllidium rebeccae Grimaldi, 2003 from Burmese amber are updated, based on new available data: new major characters are recognized, mostly concerning male terminalia and wing venation. Two new species, Postopsyllidium grimaldii sp. nov. and Postopsyllidium burmaticum sp. nov., are herein characterized, described and illustrated from the Cretaceous Burmese amber. This genus is also transferred to the newly created family Postopsyllidiidae fam. nov. Moreover, Permopsyllidiidae Becker-Migdisova, 1985 stat. nov. is elevated to family level from subfamily in Protopsyllidiidae Carpenter, 1931. The diagnoses and generic content for both families are revised.
