How to use "Family bruchidae" in context?
Family Bruchidae is a small family of beetles that contains about 30 species in 10 genera. They are distributed mainly in the Old World but one species, Canberra bruchid beetle (Odontoma canberra), is found in the New World. Most of the members of the family are small, dark wood-boring beetles. Many bruchidae are attracted to rotting wood. They create inch-long tunnels in the wood, and feed on the organic matter that forms their nests.
