Length: 1.5-2.0 mm
Members of the family Phalacridae are very glossy beetles; viewed from above, they present a continuous outline, either oval or nearly round.
Some Shining Flower Beetles are pollen-feeders, while others feed on fungi. Some are considered pests because they are associated with ergot, smuts, and molds.
Members of the genus Acylomus are tiny beetles with large eyes; the pronotum is much wider than long. The length of the scutellum is about the same as its width.
