A good example includes two Oedemeridae species in the study of Uehara-Prado et al.
The beetle families with the greatest impact on humans are Meloidae (blister beetles), Oedemeridae (false blister beetles), and Staphylinidae (rove beetles).
Cantharidin, a well known natural compound produced by beetles of family Meloidae and Oedemeridae, developed as bio- insecticide in China, was investigated for its effect of cytochrome P450 O-demethylase activity using sub-lethal concentration.
Toxicity of cantharidin, a well known natural compound produced by beetles of family Meloidae and Oedemeridae, was examined on Helicoverpa armigera.
In the order Coleoptera, only Meloidae, Oedemeridae and Staphylinidae release vesicant chemicals that cause dermatitis and conjunctivitis (the first two release cantharidin and the latter, pederin).

Of the 22 terrestrial families present in the Florida marshes (the 23rd family was Dytiscidae, an aquatic group), only Dermestidae, Latridiidae and Oedemeridae were absent from our list.
Pollination is accomplished by insects, mainly by solitary bees of the families Andrenidae and Halictidae, and several species of small beetles of the families Malachiidae, Oedemeridae, and Scarabeidae (Sanchez-Lafuente et al.
A few beetles in the families Lycidae, Cantharidae and Oedemeridae appear to aggregate for mating on saw palmetto inflorescences.
Se encontraron familias con habitos generalistas temporales, que fueron capturados durante todos los anos independientemente de la epoca de muestreo, tales como Scolytidae, Staphylinidae, Scarabaeidae, Carabidae y Nitidulidae; especialistas espaciales que solo se encontraron en BTF como Cicindelidae o Noteridae y familias raras de las cuales solo se capturaron uno o dos individuos como Buprestidae, Coccinelidae, Dermestidae, Meloidae, Oedemeridae y Anobiidae, en un solo periodo y un habitat especifco.
We used multiple regression, as before, grouping beetle responses by a single factor, family, with 16 categories, one for each family: (1) Anobiidae, (2) Bostrichidne, (3) Carabidae, (4) Corylophidae, (5) Cryptophagidae, (6) Curculionidae, (7) Elateridne, (8) Lathridiidae, (9) Leiodidae, (10) Oedemeridae, (11) Pselaphidae, (12) Ptiliidae, (13) Scarabaeidae, (14) Scydmaenidae, (15) Staphylinidae, and (16) Tenebrionidae.
