Brief Summary

Read full entry


The Chlamydopsinae is one of two exclusively inquilinous subfamilies of Histeridae (along with Hetaeriinae). Until recently this was probably the most poorly known of all histerid groups, but it has received some important recent attention (Caterino, 2000; Dégallier & Caterino, 2005a, b; Caterino & Dégallier, 2007). Chlamydopsinae are rather restricted in distribution. Most of the described species are Australian, although additional species have been described from India, Japan, Taiwan, Fiji, New Caledonia, Indonesia, and Malaysia. It is likely that many new species remain be found throughout mainland and insular southeast Asia.
