Distribution[edit]

latitudinal range[edit]

  •  ??°N-54°S [fossils to 85°S]
  • New Zealand


Phylogeny[edit]

The phylogenetic relationships of the suborders of Coleoptera appear to be disputed, with three main competing hypotheses:

(1) (Archostemata , (Adephaga , (Myxophaga , Polyphaga ))) (Beutel & Haas (2000), Beutel et al. (2008), Friedrich & Beutel (2006))

(2) ((Archostemata , Myxophaga ), (Adephaga , Polyphaga )) (Hunt et al. (2007))

(3) (Archostemata , (Myxophaga , (Adephaga , Polyphaga ))) (Caterino et al. (2002), Vogler & Caterino (2003))
