Margarinotus by Dark-Raptor Margarinotus by Dark-Raptor
Histerid beetles (Coleoptera: Histeridae) are one of the most interesting beetle families. Most of them are predators or fungivores and are armoured like tanks.

They are called "yama beetles" in Chinese, and I have no idea why. Maybe Chinese people think they look scary?

For small invertebrates, yes. I'm still looking for Hololepta plana. This is the most amazing histerid beetle I've ever seen...
