Zicha, Ondřej et al. Anobiinae – Taxon details on Biological Library (BioLib).

Anobiinae is a subfamily of death-watch beetles in the family Ptinidae, with at least 45 genera.[3][4][1] It was formerly considered a member of the family Anobiidae, but its family name has since been changed to Ptinidae.[1][5][6][4]

The larvae of a number of species tend to bore into wood, earning them the name "woodworm" or "wood borer". A few species, such as the common furniture beetle, Anobium punctatum, are pests, causing damage to wooden furniture and house structures.[7]


These 46 genera belong to the subfamily Anobiinae:[2]
