Thirty-two families of beetles were collected with 84% of the specimens collected in four families: Staphylinidae (43%), Scarabaeidae
(21%), Carabidae (11%) and Nitidulidae (9%).
is used in the classical sense, as is Curculionidae.
Among the Scarabaeidae, Xyloryctes jamaicensis Drury, a small, horned, rhinoceros beetle (Fig.
Scarab beetles associated with this kind of vegetation account for less than 1% of the Scarabaeidae in Nebraska but, considering that boreal coniferous forests are relatively depauperate of scarabs in the first place, this is not surprising.
The prey of the eastern pipistrelles we captured consisted of two families of Homopterans: Cicadellidae (leafhoppers), Delphacidae (planthoppers); two families of Coleopterans: Carabidae (ground beetles) and Scarabaeidae
(scarab beetles); three families of Dipterans: Chironomidae (midges), Tipulidae (crane flies), and Trichoceridae (winter crane flies); two families of Hymenopterans: Ichneumonidae (ichneumons) and Formicidae (ants); and one family of Hemipterans: Lygaeidae (seed bugs; Table II).
approximatus are generally longer than those reported for other beetle families, such as Scarabaeidae
and Cerambycidae, reported by Masters (1980).
The top two foods were the same, Scarabaeidae
and the spotted cucumber beetle, Diabrotica undecimpunctata.
For example, although large families such as Scarabaeidae
and Muscidae cannot easily be assigned to FFG without further identification, many orders, such as adult Odonata, Neuroptera and Orthoptera, and superfamilies, such as parasitoid Ichneumonoidea and the piercing/sucking Pentatomoidea, share broad feeding styles.
The 20 records available to me are as follows (sex of asilid bracketed): Coleoptera: Buprestidae ([female]), Coccinellidae ([female]), Dermestidae ([male]), Melyridae ([female]), Scarabaeidae
(3[male] 3[female]); Diptera: Muscidae ([male]); Hemiptera: Lygaeidae ([male]), Pentatomidae ([male]); Isoptera: Hodotermitidae (3[male] 2[female]); Orthoptera: Tridactylidae (2[male]).
Etymology: Dedicated to Philippe Moretto, French specialist in African Scarabaeidae and collector of the holotype.
Etymology: Dedicated to Francois Genier and his son Simon, Canadian specialists in Scarabaeidae and collectors of the type series of this species.

For example, Poinar (1975) reported that the beetle family Scarabaeidae
had the largest listing of insect-associated nematodes.
