- Tribolium castaneum is a species of beetle in the family Tenebrionidae. It is a worldwide pest of stored products, particularly food grains. It has become an important insect model organism and pest beetle species for ethological and food safety research as well as for studies of developmental genetics, evolutionary developmental biology and insect immunity. Its genome has been fully sequenced.
