Bolboceratidae

Bolboceratidae consists of about 40 genera and 400 species worldwide. Although the group is virtually cosmopolitan in distribution the largest numbers of taxa occur on the southern continents, with Australia the richest. Bolboceratids provision brood burrows with humus for the larvae.
