Paederus littoralis

Description:

The Paederinae is a large subfamily of rove beetles (Staphylinidae). In terms of phylogenetic relationships, the 14 subfamilies of Staphylinidae can be separated into three subgroups such a classification system links Paederinae most closely with the subfamilies Stapholinidae and Xantholinidae. Paederinae includes two tribes, Paederini and Pinophilini. Three of the genera of Paederina, a subtribe of Paederini, are associated with a skin irritation called Paederus dermatitis, due to a potent vesicant in their haemolymph. This irritant is called pederin and is HIGHLY TOXIC, MORE potent than COBRA VENOM.
