Green corridors between woodlots (sources of species) and domestic gardens have largely enhanced species richness of staphylinid beetles in gardens (Vergnes, Le Viol, & Clergeau, 2012; Klaus, 2013).
According to statistical analyses, for winter season, the significant effect of different land-use types had been observed on the population abundance of ants (Monomorium spp.; p-value = 0.001), coleopteran grubs (p-value = 0.001) and carabid and staphylinid beetles (p-value < 0.05), earthworms (p-value = 0.004), earwigs (p-value = 0.01), isopods (p-value = 0.001) and soil-dwelling spiders (p-value = 0.001), while the abundance of ants (Camponotus spp.), crickets, surface grasshoppers, myriapods and termites appeared unaffected by land-use types (Supplementary Table I).

Ground beetles (Carabidae) are among the first epigeic arthropods to colonize fresh mine spoil and Staphylinid adults can rapidly colonize isolated revegetated mine sites [42, 43].
Such plesiomorphic structure is maintained or reappeared in genera such as Bocageopsis or Xylopia, which have adapted to pollination by thrips or staphylinid beetles, insects that are known to eat pollen without gnawing petal tissue.
Morphological and/or behavioural resemblance to ants, also known as myrmecomorphy, has evolved at least 70 times in more than 2000 described species belonging to 54 arthropod families in groups such as spiders, plant bugs, and staphylinid beetles [21].
