Eucnemidae (false click beetles)

Lissomidae  
The false click beetles (Eucne­midae) are closely related to the click beetles (Elateridae), but their click mechanism is much weaker. They are found largely in woodlands and forests with plenty of dead wood for breeding. The larvae develop in mouldy wood, mostly in the presence of fungi. They are a cosmopolitan family with 1700 species found in all continents except the Antarctica. Their greatest diversity is found in the tropical and subtropical regions. In Germany 19 species have been recorded.
