Atlas of the family Tetratomidae of Russia

Tetratomidae is a small family of beetles sometimes called polypore fungus beetles. The family consists of several genera, most of which used to be in the family Melandryidae. Tetratomidae can be found worldwide.[1]

Their food consists of fruiting bodies of hymenomycete fungi[2]

These 12 genera belong to the family Tetratomidae:
