This family consists of about 150 genera and more than 1,600 species in the world.

Included in this catalog are 52 genera and 332 species. However, Ptininae are not treated.

Larvae of most of the species for which the habits are known bore into dead hardwoods and softwoods. Larvae of several species feed in various kinds of fungi. Some species feed in cones of conifers, some in twigs or vines, others in seeds, some in plant stems, a few in bark of various trees, and a very few have been bred from galls.

Adults are most frequently collected by sweeping vegetation in wooded areas; many species are attracted to light.
