Aradus is a genus of true bugs in the family Aradidae, the flat bugs. It is distributed worldwide, mainly in the Holarctic.[1] There are around 200[2] or more[1] species in the genus.

Most Aradus feed on fungi, often in dead trees.[3] Some species are pyrophilous, associating with burned habitat such as forests after wildfires. They feed on the particular fungi that grow on burnt wood.[2] Examples include A. laeviusculus, which eats fungi growing on burned conifers, and Aradus gracilis, which occurs in large numbers on burned South Florida slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. densa).[3]
