Eublemma roseonivea Eublemma roseonivea, the predaceous moth, is a species of moth of the family Erebidae. It is found in China, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaya and Borneo.
Cooloola (insect) Little is known about their life histories, as they lead an almost entirely subterranean existence, but it is believed that they are predaceous towards other soil-dwelling invertebrates.
Pyropterus nigroruber Adults occurs from June to August. The predaceous larvae pupate in rotten wood, mainly in dead birch timber. They feed on small insects.
Apotomops rhampha The species name refers to the shape of the process of the sterigma and is derived from Greek "rhamphos" (meaning the beak of predaceous bird).
Hemibrycon sanjuanensis The species is insectivorous. Among other things, it has been known to eat water scavenger beetles, black flies, flesh flies, damselflies, predaceous diving beetles, caddisflies, nematodes, and isopods.
Haliplidae Like predaceous diving beetles (Dytiscidae), the crawling water beetles form an early offshoot of the Adephaga. They still have grooved maxillae and their tentoriolacinial muscle does not attach to the mesal stipial base. Their larvae, like those of predaceous diving beetles, do not possess eggshell-bursters on the head. It is not yet resolved whether Haliplidae and Dytiscidae are closest relatives, or whether they originated independently from the basal Adephaga.
Chresmoda These Polyneoptera of uncertain position have been considered aquatic and terrestrial bug or phasmids. They should instead be anomalous paraplecopterids living on the water surface, probably predaceous on nektonic small animals.
Chresmodidae These Polyneoptera of uncertain position have been considered aquatic and terrestrial bug or phasmids. They should instead be anomalous paraplecopterids living on the water surface, probably predaceous on nektonic small animals.
Parazacco spilurus Parazacco spilurus also known as the Predaceous chub, is a species of fish in the family Cyprinidae distributes in the Pearl River system, the Hainan Island and northern Vietnam.
Carrion insects This classification consists of necrobiont insects which use decaying remains as a permanent environment necessary for their life and development. Necrobiont insects includes necrophagous and entomophagous trophic specializations, or necrophagous, predaceous/parasitic and omnivorous species.
Flabellina trophina The predaceous aeolis ("Flabellina trophina") is a species of sea slug, an aeolid nudibranch, a marine heterobranch mollusc in the family Flabellinidae. This species was commonly known as "Flabellina fusca", a junior synonym.
Chresmoda obscura These Polyneoptera of uncertain positi on have been considered aquatic and terrestrial bug or phasmids. They should instead be anomalous paraplecopterids living on the water surface, probably predaceous on nektonic small animals.
Cleridae The Cleridae contains many species of predaceous beetles that feed on other beetles and beetle larvae in their natural habitat. The most common prey item for checkered beetles are the bark beetles and wood boring beetles.
Neoporus Neoporus is a genus of beetle in the family Dytiscidae. These are the predaceous diving beetles, a family of water beetles. Their larvae are commonly known as water tigers. Neoporus is one of over 160 genera in family Dytiscidae.
Carrion insects The majority of beetles present at remains are there as predators of blowfly larvae, and are not directly concerned with the removal of carcass materials. Predaceous beetles may arrive at a site of remains as early as the bloat stage of decomposition, when there is a strong attraction of their necrophagous prey. Some of these species may also remain during active decay. During the advanced stage of decay there is an increase in those insects which are predaceous and/or parasitic on necrophagous beetles.
Cleridae Cleridae have a large number of niches and feeding habits. Most genera are predaceous and feed on other beetles and larvae; however other genera are scavengers or pollen feeders. Clerids have elongated bodies with bristly hairs, are usually bright colored, and have variable antennae. Checkered beetles range in length between 3 millimeters and 24 millimeters. Cleridae can be identified based on their 5–5–5 tarsal formula, division of sternites, and the absence of a special type of vesicle. Female Cleridae lay between 28–42 eggs at a time predominately under the bark of trees. Larvae are predaceous and feed vigorously before pupation and subsequently emergence as adults.
Athericidae The adults mostly feed on nectar but some species feed on mammal blood. Hematophagy has been demonstrated in adult "Suragina" and "Suraginella" and is suspected in other genera. Larvae do not feed in the first instar; after first molting they become predaceous. Larvae typically prey on invertebrates or are saprophagous.
