Ironclad Beetles


Summary 3

Zopheridae is a family of beetles that has grown considerably in recent years as the members of two other families have been included within its circumscription; these former families are the Monommatidae and the Colydiidae, which are now both included in the Zopheridae as subfamilies or (in the former case) even as tribe of subfamily Zopherinae. Some authors accept up to 6 subfamilies here, while others merge all except the Colydiinae into the Zopherinae.
