Rove beetles (Staphylinidae) are one of the largest families of beetles, with over 45,000 species known worldwide and probably over 75% of tropical species still undescribed. They live in leaf litter of woodland and forest floors and grasslands. They concentrate in fallen decomposing fruits, the space under loose bark of fallen, decaying trees, drifted plant materials on banks of rivers and lakes, and dung, carrion, and nests of vertebrate animals. Several hundred species live only on seashores.
