I have a table that looks like this where I need previous id until refid is NULL.

My table looks like this:
---------------------------------
| id | refid | Title            |
---------------------------------
|  1 |  NULL | Group1           |
|  2 |  NULL | Group2           |
|  3 |     1 | Undergroup1      |
|  4 |     1 | Undergroup2      |
|  6 |  NULL | Group3           |
|  7 |     3 | Underundergroup1 |
|  8 |     3 | Underundergroup2 |
|  9 |  NULL | Group3           |
| 11 |  NULL | Group3           |
---------------------------------



Now if I choose ID 7, my resultset should be:
---------------------------------
| id | refid | Title            |
---------------------------------
|  1 |  NULL | Gruppe1          |
|  3 |     1 | Undergruppe1     |
|  7 |     3 | Underundergruppe1|
---------------------------------


if I choose ID 3, my resultset should be:
---------------------------------
| id | refid | Title            |
---------------------------------
|  1 |  NULL | Gruppe1          |
|  3 |     1 | Undergruppe1     |
---------------------------------


How can this be done? I'm a bit stuck here...
