Endomychidae Checklist: Handsome Fungus Beetles
Handsome fungus beetles from the family Endomychidae Leach, 1815 are generally recognized by the presence of two longitudinal sulci (groove) or sublateral lines on the pronotum with some exceptions, and the presence of frontoclypeal suture (transverse groove across the face).
Why handsome? Could not find any literature on the etymology behind the family’s name.
This page consists of a personal checklist of all Handsome Fungus Beetles (Endomychidae) that I’ve encountered over the years. Most were identified with the help from the kind folks on Flickr and Facebook, especially Boris Büche and David Ball.
All photos are of live subjects shot in the field, with the dorsal view selected where available. Click on individual photos for larger views and views from other angles. As specimens were not collected, identifications were done purely based on photographs and may not be 100% accurate.
This page will be updated regularly, please let me know if you spot any mistakes.
