- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 448 species and subspecies in the Family Dermestidae.
Anthrenus is a genus of skin beetles (family Dermestidae). Commonly known as one of the several genera of "carpet beetles", Anthrenus was historically placed in a subfamily Anthreninae, though presently included in the Megatominae. The genus is closely related. [more]
Attagenus is a genus of beetles. This genus is found in tropical Africa, the Palearctic including Europe, the Near East, the Nearctic, North Africa and East Asia. [more]
Dermestes is a genus of larder beetles in the family Dermestidae. Both the adult beetles and the larvae feed on dry dead animals and vegetable material. Dermestes, especially its larvae, can seriously damage natural animal fibers, foodstuff, furnishing and zoological collections. Larder beetles are common throughout the world and are a serious pest in some places. [more]
At least 37 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Trogoderma.
