Cryptophagidae (silken fungus beetles)

The silken fungus beetles (Crypto­phagidae) are small to very small species of elongate or oval shape. They are found in leaf litter, in vegetable detritus, partially in nests of ants or small mammals. Worldwide 800 species have been described from virtually all zoogeographical realms, thereof 130 species from Germany. Their determination requires some skill and is impossible just by photo.
