The Coleoptera are the beetles, one of the most diverse groups of insects. The earliest beetles were probably inhabitants of subcortical and interstitial spaces in wood (Kirejtshuk & Nel 2013), but they have since diversified to a much wider range of habitats. Beetles are characterised by the transformation of the forewings into hardened elytra with the forewing venation entirely lost in modern Coleoptera. They also have a distinctly shaped pronotum, with the dorsal surface flattened and more or less separated from the sloping sides by lateral carinae (though these have been reduced or lost in many derived subgroups) (Kirejtshuk & Nel 2013). A well developed articulation between prothorax and mesothorax allows the former to move independently of the rest of the thorax.

In the Tshekardocoleidae and other stem-Coleoptera families, the forewings retained at least some of their original venation (the forewings of Tshekardocoleidae were also probably leathery rather than entirely sclerotised) and some authors have recognised the Tshekardocoleidae as a separate order Protocoleoptera. The spaces between the veins and crossveins were occupied by a system of dense, square cells that at least superficially resemble the series of square punctures found in some basal crown-beetle families (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). The Early Permian Tshekardocoleidae retained the full complement of veins and possessed very broad costal and subcostal areas on the elytra (Kirejtshuk & Nel 2013). They also differ from later beetles in having antennae with 13 segments (versus 11 or less) and small procoxae with widely separated bases (versus closely placed procoxae) (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). A short ovipositor is known to have been present in at least on genus, Moravocoleus; larvae may have been woodborers (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). Members of the genera Tshekardocoleus and Sylvacoleus lack a common stem, or have at most a very short stem, to veins M and CuA; this stem is present and elongate in Moravocoleus. Vein Rs has two posterior branches in Tshekardocoleus but is unbranched in Sylvacoleus.

More derived families such as Permocupedidae and Taldycupedidae with reduced venation, and usually with reduced costal areas, appeared in the Late Permian. The Permocupedidae had most veins distinguishable but lacked vein Rs; veins M and CuA arose independently. Members of the Asiocoleidae have vein M reduced but other veins remain elongate. Taldycupes reticulatus was a small, elongate and flattened beetle with a prognathous head and small paranotals on the prothorax. In the Schizocoleidae, the veins are either distinct or replaced by punctate grooves, often not distinct from interstitial veins, and there are four to six rows of cells in the anterior of the elytra. The Tricoleidae are known from the Triassic and Jurassic, and possessed three main veins on the elytra.

Living species of Coleoptera are divided between the large subgroups Adephaga and Polyphaga, and the two smaller taxa Archostemata and Myxophaga. Relationships between these subgroups have been subject to some contention; the Archostemata (which retain the potentially primitive wood-boring habit) are commonly regarded as basal to the other lineages but a recent molecular analysis by McKenna et al. (2015) supported a sister relationship between the Polyphaga and all other beetles. Potential synapomorphies of an Adephaga-Archostemata-Myxophaga clade include wing-folding type, lack of cervical sclerites, and the absence of a basal piece on the aedeagus (Lawrence et al. 1987). The Polyphaga are by far the largest of the major coleopteran subgroups, and are characterised by the absence of the notopleural sutures at the sides of the prothorax. The Ademosynidae, known from the Triassic of Australia and South America, have been suggested to be stem-group Polyphaga (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). Ademosynids were small oval or elongate-oval beetles with costate elytra lacking remnant veins.

Polyphagans are first represented in the fossil record by the Triassic Peltosyne triassica from Central Asia (Lawrence & Britton 1991). The Jurassic Larvula cassa may represent an early aquatic polyphagan larva, but its affinities are uncertain (Sinitshenkova 2002). Tomocoleites longigastrulatus was described from Chinese Eocene amber by Hong (2002) as a likely polyphagan, albeit one that cannot be easily linked to any living subgroup. The Polyphaga can mostly be divided between the major clades Staphyliniformia, Elateriformia, Bostrichoidea and Cucujiformia, with a smaller clade Scirtoidea recently supported as the sister clade to other living Polyphaga by McKenna et al. (2015). The Staphyliniformia, usually defined as including Staphylinoidea and Hydrophiloidea, should probably also include the Scarabaeoidea. Members of this expanded clade have six or seven visible abdominal ventrites with the anteriormost ventrite divided by the metathorax so it is present as two lateral triangular pieces. McKenna et al.'s (2015) molecular analysis also supported a sister-group relationship between the Bostrichoidea and Cucujiformia. Such a relationship had previously been suggested on the basis of the presence in members of these groups of cryptonephridial Malpighian tubules, in which the ends of the tubules are attached to the rectum (Lawrence & Britton 1991). This arrangement may function in water retention, allowing the tubules to resorb water from the beetle's waste. Synapomorphies of the Cucujiformia include the absence of plates on the hind coxae, absence of functional spiracles on abdominal segment 8, reduction of the pregenital segments 9 and 10 (Lawrence & Britton 1991).

The Phytophaga is a major clade of beetles in the Cucujiformia, including the Chrysomelidae (leaf beetles), Cerambycidae (longicorn beetles) and Curculionoidea (weevils). Phytophagans are united by the structure of the pseudotetramerous tarsus, with the fourth tarsal segment minute and concealed between lobes of the third, and of the internal male reproductive organs, with a reduced aedeagus (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). The clade's name reflects the plant-feeding habits of the vast majority of its species; more than 99% of the more than 110,000 described species are plant feeders.

Members of the Curculionoidea have the front of the head extended into an elongate rostrum (secondarily reduced in some subgroups) with a concordant reduction and fusion of many of the mouthparts; they also usually have distinctly clubbed antennae with a long scape lying in a scrobe (groove on the side of the rostrum). With the exception of the families Anthribidae and Nemonychidae, the labrum is not visible (reduced or absent) in the adult (Lawrence & Britton 1991). Weevils have a fossil record extending to the Late Jurassic (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). The classification of the Curculionoidea has been subject to much debate between authors. For instance, members of the Caridae, a small group of weevils found in Australia and South America, have been variously classified within the Attelabidae, Belidae or Brentidae, and are now generally treated as their own family (Bouchard 2014). Carids develop in seeds of Cupressaceae with females using their rostrum to drill into cones for oviposition (Bouchard 2014). Members of the Brentidae and Curculionidae are united by having the first two ventrites of the abdomen solidly fused with the remainder freely movable (Lawrence & Britton 1991).

Characters (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005): Ocelli often absent. Forewings heavily sclerotised, transformed into elytra, with venation reduced (absent in all Recent taxa); metathorax reduced; hind wings folded lengthwise and crosswise to be tucked under elytra when at rest, with reduced venation. Prothorax freely articulating with pterothorax, always large and shieldlike. Abdomen with sternites heavily sclerotised, tergites usually less sclerotised; cerci absent.
