308 Most beetles reproduce sexually and are oviparous. Sex attractant and aggregation pheromones have been reported for many species, as well as complex courtship behavior. Parthenogenesis, paedogenesis, viviparity, etc., are extremely rare phenomena in this order. The number of eggs laid varies among species, as does the subsequent pattern of development.

In some groups a cocoon is spun.
