Silvanids generally are small, brownish, flattened, pubescent and densely punctured beetles ranging from 1.2-15 mm in length, and mostly with a 5-5-5 tarsal formula. They have short, strongly clubbed, to very elongate antennae, and frequently grooves or carinae on the head and/or pronotum. Many genera have the lateral margins of the pronotum dentate or denticulate.
