World Checklist of Extant Mecoptera Species
WORLD CHECKLIST OF EXTANT MECOPTERA SPECIES
This family of mecopterans is known from a single existing species
found in the southern beech forests of southern Chile. Adults are flattened
with very reticulate wing venation. They run over the forest floor at
night, like cockroaches, and most often are collected by baiting with
an oatmeal trail. Larval stages are unknown.
