These beetles of the Pedilidae family are also known as false ants. Adults live on flowers or greenery, where they feed on the plants" sap and nectar. The growing larvae live in rotting vegetation in moist environments. The fossil pictured shows that Pedilid beetles have remained unchanged for millions of years.
