Coleoptera was the most abundant order, represented by five families: Chrysomelidae (92.13% of total Coleoptera), Silvanidae (3.37%), Curculionidae (1.68%), Nitidulidae
(1.12%) and Cerambycidae (1.68%).
However, the presence of beetles of the families Hydrophilidae, Staphylinidae, Nitidulidae
, and Curculionidae in Heliconia bihai (L) (Zingiberales: Heliconiaceae) was reported in northeastern Brazil by Oliveira etal.

A large array of insect visitors were observed on the cones, the most common being sap and rove beetles (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae
, Staphylinidae), and fruit flies (Diptera: Drosophilidae).
La familia con mayor numero de especies fue la Curculionidae con 13 especies, seguida de Nitidulidae
con 4, Syrphidae con 3, Drosophilidea, Apidae (Meliponinae) y Phoridae con 2 especies cada una (Fig.

Habitat preferences of carrion beetles in the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, New Jersey (Coleoptera: Silphidae, Dermestidae, Nitidulidae
, Histeridae, Scarabaeidae).
The small pollinator beetles of the Nitidulidae
family observed by Moran (1961) and the beetles that feed on pollen and tepals observed by Del Castillo (1994) and Huerta-Martinez (1995) belong to the visit types FN, Fe and Ft.
The aim of this study is to show how Annonaceae supposedly emerged as a beetle-pollinated group, being visited by small fruit-beetles of the family Nitidulidae
, which are attracted by an imitative fruit scent of flowers, and how other members of the family adapted to other insects.
