Pselaphidae (short-winged mold beetles)

Lycidae  
The short-winged mold beetles (Psela­phidae) are a very speciose group with more than 9000 species scientifically described worldwide, especially diverse in the tropics. They have a very variable morphology. They Pselaphidae live chiefly in moist habitats, including the edges of bogs and marshes, under bark of dead trees, and especially in leaf litter and rotten wood. Some species are associated with ants. They are predatory on other small insects, e.g. nematodes, springtails and mites. In Germany 90 different species are known to occur.
