30 · Family 30. Ochodaeidae This subfamily contains four genera, three of which are found only in Africa. The fourth genus (Pseudochodaeus ) is limited to the west coast of the United States. Little is known about the adult or larval habits. References: Carlson and Ritcher 1974; Scholtz et al. 1988. Pseudochodaeus Carlson and Ritcher 1974 The genus Pseudochodaeus is monobasic. The single species, P. estriatus (Schaeffer), is distributed at mid-elevations from southern Oregon to central California.

Two subfamilies, Chaetocanthinae and Ochodaeinae are currently recognized (Lawrence and Newton 1995; Scholtz et al. 1988). The phylogenetic position of the Ochodaeidae within the Scarabaeoidea has been discussed by numerous authors. Current views consider the ochodaeids to be an “intermediate” scarabaeoid family (Browne and Scholtz 1995; Scholtz 1990). A close relationship with the Hybosoridae was suggested by Carlson and Ritcher (1974). Recent studies suggest a close relationship between the Ochodaeidae, Hybosoridae, and Ceratocanthidae and consider the Ochodaeidae to be the sister group to the Hybosoridae plus Family 30.
