This is a family of over 35,000 species in more than 2,500 genera, one of the largest and most commonly encountered of all beetle families. They exist on every continent except Antarctica. Leaf beetles are partially recognizable by their tarsal formula, which appears to be 4-4-4, but is actually 5-5-5. They are distinguished with difficulty from long-horned beetles by the antennae not arising from frontal tubercles.
