Family Erotylidae - Pleasing Fungus Beetles


Skelley P.E. (2001) Pleasing fungus beetles of North America: Family Erotylidae
[cite:375671]
General info, keys, species distribution. All in all, a very helpful source put together by our leading authority.
NB: Due to the recent overhaul of erotylid taxonomy(1), covers only what is now Erotylinae except Languriini

Good concise profile of the group, with the emphasis on the Floridan fauna. (NB: Due to the recent overhaul of the classification, the information therein provided only applies to a portion of the subfamily Erotylinae, and do not cover the Xenoscelinae and Languriini.)
