Immature Stages of Scenopinidae


Detailed information on immature stages of Scenopinidae is being acquired.  However, Clausen (1940) noted that the immature stagers of this small family live in decaying fungi and wood and are also found sometimes in furniture and underneath carpets.  Scenopinus fenestralis L. Is frequently found under carpets and is believed to be predaceous on carpet beetle larvae.  The larvae of some species inhabit fungi and decaying wood and feed on other insects in those habitats.
