Common Name: Net-winged Beetles
Description: The elytra of net-winged beetles are relatively soft and flexible. They are marked by numerous ridges that represent an extensive network of longitudinal veins and cross veins. In most species, the antennae are serrate (sawtoothed) and the elytra are brightly colored with bands of red, black, or yellow. Adults are usually found on vegetation in woodlands where they feed on nectar and honeydew.
