Derodontid is the common name for a family of beetles in the order Coleoptera, sometimes known as the tooth-necked fungus beetles.

Derodontids are found in various habitats, such as forests, grasslands, and urban areas.

Some species feed on slime molds, while others are predators of woolly adelgids, which are insects that attack conifers.

Derodontids are mostly distributed in the Northern Hemisphere, especially in temperate regions.

However, some species have been introduced to other continents, such as Laricobius erichsonii, which was first recorded in Britain in 1971 on fir trees.

Derodontids are related to the Bostrichoidea, which includes the death watch beetles, skin beetles, powder-post beetles and other subgroups.

Derodontids are not considered to be pests, but rather beneficial insects that help control woolly adelgids and decompose organic matter.

Derodontids are a small but diverse and fascinating group of beetles that deserve more attention and study.

A Derodontid is a type of beetle that belongs to the family Derodontidae, sometimes known as the tooth-necked fungus beetles.

They are small, between 2 and 6 mm in length, and have spiny margins on their pronotum (part of the thorax) that give them their name.

Some species feed on slime molds, while others are predators of woolly adelgids that attack conifers.

The Derodontid is a beetle small and spiny
It likes to munch on fungus or some woolly tiny
It has two ocelli on its head to see the light
And four antennae segments to sense the smell and sight

The Derodontid is a beetle rare and unique
It has its own superfamily, Derodontoidea, so to speak
It is related to the Bostrichoidea, a diverse group of beetles
But it has its own features, like the toothy neck that nettles

The Derodontid is a beetle old and wise
It has a fossil record from the Middle Jurassic times
It has survived many changes in the earth and climate
And it still thrives today in various habitats and biomes
