The ecological groups of species were distinguished, and their hierarchical classification was elaborated. 88, No. We strive to provide accurate information, but we are mostly just amateurs attempting to make sense of a diverse natural world. The cosmopolitan dermestid beetles live in varied habitats, provided there's a carcass or other food source available. Subfamily DERMESTINAE Latreille 1804 ==Tribe Dermestini Latreille 1804.
