It constitutes "Chapter 38" (pp. 1137-1174) from the reference text "Soil Biology Guide(1)
" edited by Daniel L. Dindal.
Covers soil-inhabiting taxa of the family Staphylinidae, addressing (for both adults and larvae): morphology, biology & ecology, collection & study techniques, classification, and identification.
The illustrated keys to genera for North American are limited to genera in which al least one species is frequently found in soil or organic litter of forested or unforested area. Genera with species primarily restricted to occurrence on dung, carrion, fruiting bodies of higher fungi, wet habitats such as hogs and edges of streams and lakes, and nests of vertebrates or invertebrates are excluded, although individuals of these species are occasionally found in soil.
