The Adephaga have been proposed as sister group to Polyphaga plus Myxophaga based on the following shared characters: completely sclerotized elytra, reduced venation in the hind wings, and folded as opposed to rolled hind wings. The thorax is finely textured, and elytra are ribbed with ridges running along the length of the body.

Remote, volcanic oceanic islands tend to support the greater number of endemic beetles. The female calls the larvae to the pool of tissue by rubbing a ridge on the elytra against the corresponding abdominal segment. Lawson in the Australian Journal of Botany and a listing of some more recent literature. Habitat types are inferred by comparing fossil beetles with the habits and distributions of extant species.

Most beetles have fairly regular life cycles that are influenced heavily by or coincide with changes in temperature and precipitation. William E. The taxonomy, biology and distribution of the Australian jewel beetle Chrysobothris saundersi Macleay Insecta: Coleoptera: Buprestidae. The larvae of Lampyridae, however, are specialists, tracking snails by following their slime trails. With approximatelyspecies described thus far, beetles make up the largest known group of organisms.
