Ithonids-Ithonidae

 

Members of this family are brilliantly colored. They are found primarily in Australia. Only one species, the rare Oliarces clara, has been found in the United States. The larvae of the Ithonidae are blind, yet they are somehow able to track down and attack scarab beetles (Scarabeidae).
