    Description
    The Cydnidae is one of the most important and extensively occurring families after Pentatomidae within the Superfamily, Pentatomoidea. As many of the representatives of this family live in soil and feed on roots, they are commonly known as ‘Burrower bugs’ or ‘Burrowing bugs’. The Cydnidae of the World includes 73 genera and 526 species (Jerzy A. Lis, 1999). In India, we have a record of 28 genera and 72 species.
