Microsternus Lewis 1887
Only one species of this genus, M. ulkei (Crotch, occures in northeastern United States. Details of its biology are unknown. It apparently feeds on hard bracket fungi in mature eastern deciduous forests (Goodrich 1994). A larva is illustrated in Lawrence (1991), but no formal description has been made. Dury (1878) comments on larval habits.
