Melyridae (Soft-Winged Flower Beetles)
These are small beetles with soft wing-covers, which are broader towards the posterior than the anterior. Both the head and pronotum are rather wide. Soft-Winged Flower Beetles are variously colored, and their bodies are often covered with fine hairs. The adults prey on other flower-visiting insects, or they may feed on pollen. The larvae are carnivorous, or scavenge for dead animal material on the ground.
