The Cerophytidae are a family of Coleoptera known as the rare click beetles. Adults are infrequently encountered, and larvae are found within wood, where they are believed to feed on fungi. The family contains over 20 species in five genera, primarily distributed in the New World:[1] 17 fossil genera are known extending to the Early Jurassic.[2]
