Cucujiformia

Cucujiformia is an infraorder of polyphagan beetles, representing the vast majority of plant-eating beetles.

The infraorder contains six superfamilies:

  • Chrysomeloidea (~7 families including longhorn beetles & leaf beetles)
  • Cleroidea (checkered beetles, bark-gnawing beetles and soft-winged flower beetles)
  • Cucujoidea (32 families that includes ladybirds, fungus beetles and bark beetles)
  • Curculionoidea (~8 families primarily consisting of weevils and also including snout beetles)
  • Lymexylidae (ship-timber beetles)
  • Tenebrionoidea (formerly "Heteromera") (30 families including blister beetles and ant-like beetles)
