Series: RES Handbooks for the Identification of British Insects Volume: 5/18
By: Brian Levey
32 pages, Col plates, line illus
The Scraptiidae are a common, but relatively poorly known beetle family, with a maximum adult body length of 2.5-5.55mm. Adults from several species are associated with the flowers of Rosaceae and Umbelliferae, while other species are mainly collected from the foliage of trees. The larvae are scavengers, living beneath bark and in rotting wood.
This new Handbook covers the 16 species, from the two genera of Scraptia and Anapsis, that have been recorded in the British Isles. Fully illustrated keys to genera and species are provided. Notes on each species include information on British and European distribution, abundance, intraspecific variation, phenology of the adults, and larval hosts, if known.
