The subterranean way of life is one of the living organism’s most interesting adaptations for a special habitat. It is no surprise that one of the most successful groups in using this strategy is the insect. The majority of insects living in subterranean environment (caves, pits, deep layer of soil, MSS – Superficial Subterranean Habitat) are members of the order Coleoptera. Carabidae, Leiodidae and Staphylinidae are the most wide-spread families addapted to those habitats.
