In this paper is presented the actual stage the knowledge about the damages bruchides, respectively a short history of the knowledge about the systematics of bruchides, the systematics of bruchides of the Palearctic region and the morfological characteristics of the representatives groups systemathics. The first work dedicated to the systematic study of the bruchides was SCHÖNHERR’S work, 1833, 1839, (quoted by LOUKIANOVITCH and TER MINASSIAN, 1957) where a large number of bruchides was described. LOUKIANOVITCH and TER MINASSIAN, 1957, divide the bruchides of the Pale arctic region into 5 distinct subfamilies: Rhaebinae, Kytorrhininae, Pachmerinae whose representatives are often injurious the seeds of several palm trees, Bruchinae and Amblycerinae subfamily. In 1967, KASZAB describes the 6th subfamily, named Urodininae.
