Mycetophagidae

Hairy fungus beetles are 1.5-5.5 mm long, oval, and slightly flattened. The body is usually covered with fine setae, and is brown to black and sometimes marked with red or orange. The larvae and adults of nearly all species, including those associated with stored-food products, feed on fungi, hence the family name. They are not usually considered major grain pests, but they can be serious pests of rail-shipped grain. These beetles live in spilled grain along railroad tracks, and fly in large numbers in late summer and fall.
