Beetles are the group of insects with the largest number of known species. They are classified in the order Coleoptera (from Greek ??????, koleos, ""sheath""; and ??????, pteron, ""wing"", thus ""sheathed wing""), which contains more described species than in any other order in the animal kingdom, constituting about 25% of all known life-forms. About 40% of all described insect species are beetles (about 400,000 species), and new species are frequently discovered.
