Scraptiidae

The Scraptiidae RES Handbook covers the 16 species, from two genera, recorded in the British Isles. Fully illustrated keys to genera and species are provided.

A small group of beetles with no vernacular name, the Scraptiidae are cosmopolitan in distribution, with about 400 species worldwide.

Notes on each species include information on British and European distribution, abundance, intraspecific variation, phenology of the adults, and larval hosts, if known.
