The Mycetophagidae or hairy fungus beetles are a family of beetles in the large suborder Polyphaga.[1][2] The different species are between 1.0 and 6.5 mm in length.[3] The larvae and adults live in decaying leaf litter, fungi, and under bark. Most species feed on fungi (hence the name).[3] Worldwide, the 18 genera contain around 200 species.
