Myxophaga are a small group of beetles, but phylogenetically crucial as one of the four coleopteran suborders. The monogeneric Sphaeriusidae, one of four myxophagan families, comprise about 20 species, most of them living in moist substrate at river edges. The morphology of the minute hemispherical adult is very insufficiently known. Consequently, we document external and internal head structures using scanning electron microscopy, microtome sections and three‐dimensional reconstructions. The… Expand
