Darkling beetle

Tenebrionidae

Description:

Darkling beetle is the common name of the large family of beetles, Tenebrionidae. The number of species in the Tenebrionidae is estimated at more than 20,000 and the family is cosmopolitan. Human transport has spread several individual species inadvertently so that each of them has become cosmopolitan. Examples include Tribolium castaneum and other now-cosmopolitan pests of stored products.
