What is the animal Hybosorids known for?

Hybosorids are a family of beetles that are sometimes called scavenger scarab beetles.

They are known for their large mandibles and labrum, which they use to feed on carrion and other invertebrates.

They are also known for their 10-segmented antennae, which have a hollowed club that holds the last two segments.

Hybosorids are widely distributed in the Old World, but some species have been introduced to the Americas and become pests of turf grasses.

What does the Hybosorids look like?

Hybosorids are a family of beetles
That live in the tropics and like to eat peels
They have big mandibles and labrum to bite
And antennae with ten segments that fit just right

They are small and oval, from brown to black
They can stridulate by rubbing their legs on their back
Their larvae have three lobes on their labrum too
And they feed on dead plants and animals, eww!

They are not very well-known, but they are quite diverse
They have 690 species in 97 genera, or even worse
They belong to the Scarabaeoidea, the superfamily of scarabs
But they are not as famous as the dung beetles or the stags
