Subfamilies and Classification of Tenebrionidae
Tenebrionidae is one of the most diverse families within Coleoptera (beetles), and is very difficult to completely classify (Aalbu et al. 2002). As a result, the family has been divided into 10 subfamilies, 96 tribes, and 61 subtribes. The sub-families include Lagriinae, Phrenapatinae, Zolodinae, Pimeliinae, Tenebrioninae, Alleculinae, Coelometopinae, Diaperinae, Cossyphodinae, and Nilioninae (Vratislav et al., 2009)
