Sometimes Comb-Clawed Beetles are considered a separate family, Alleculidae, but current wisdom is that they make up a subfamily of Tenebrionidae, the Darkling Beetles.
The species shown here is one of only two in the genus that occur in America north of Mexico.
Members of this group are often found under bark, and sometimes on flowers. Some species will fly to lights.
