Morphology‐based phylogenetic reconstruction of Cholevinae (Coleoptera: Leiodidae): a new view on higher‐level relationships
The current state of knowledge of the suprageneric relationships in Cholevinae is either derived from informal evaluations of putative synapomorphies or based on molecular studies with limitedExpand
Cephalic anatomy and three-dimensional reconstruction of the head of Catops ventricosus (Weise, 1877) (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
Adult head structures are well known in the coleopteran suborders Archostemata and Adephaga, whereas the available information is very fragmentary in the megadiverse Polyphaga, including theExpand
Pretarsus and distal margin of the terminal tarsomere as an unexplored character system for higher‐level classification in Cholevinae (Coleoptera, Leiodidae)
Cholevinae are well founded as a monophylum, but their internal phylogenetic relationships constitute a matter of longstanding dispute. The morphology has been the main source of information in mostExpand
Two Invaders Instead of One: The True Identity of Species under the Name Ceracis cucullatus (Coleoptera: Ciidae)
The Neotropical obligate fungivorous beetle Ceracis cucullatus (Mellié) has attracted attention of coleopterists due to the increasing number of records of populations in Africa. Although itsExpand
Two new Neotropical species of Ceracis Mellié (Coleoptera, Ciidae) and redefinition of the cucullatus group.
Two new Neotropical species of Ceracis Mellie are described: Ceracis cassumbensis Antunes-Carvalho & Lopes-Andrade, sp. n. from a single locality in northeastern Brazil and Ceracis navarreteiExpand
Grossicis, a new genus of Neotropical minute tree-fungus beetles (Coleoptera: Ciidae), with a detailed discussion on its systematic position in the family.
Grossicis gen. nov. is described based on G. diadematus (Mellié, 1849) comb. nov., the type species, and G. laminicornis sp. nov. from Brazil. Diagnostic characters of the genus include the apicalExpand
The cephalic morphology of the troglobiontic cholevine species Troglocharinus ferreri (Coleoptera, Leiodidae)
Leiodidae are the second largest subterranean radiation of beetles at family rank. To explore morphological trends linked with troglobiontic habits and characters with potential phylogeneticExpand
Pretarsal structures in Leiodidae and Agyrtidae (Coleoptera, Staphylinoidea)
We analysed pretarsal characters of 87 species of Leiodidae (including 10 cholevines and representatives of all tribes and ca. 60% of the genera of non‐cholevines), five species of Agyrtidae, andExpand
Two new Neotropical species of Ceracis Mellié (Coleoptera, Ciidae) and redefinition of the cucullatus group
Abstract Two new Neotropical species of Ceracis Mellié are described: Ceracis cassumbensis Antunes-Carvalho & Lopes-Andrade, sp. n. from a single locality in northeastern Brazil and CeracisExpand
Two new polyphagan beetles (Tenebrionidae, Leiodidae) from lower Cenomanian amber of Myanmar
Abstract Mesozoic tenebrionid and leiodid beetles are poorly known. Here we describe Praezolodinus pilosus gen. et sp. nov. (Tenebrionidae: Zolodininae) and Cretoptomaphagus microsoma gen. et sp.Expand
