Phylogeny of Psephenidae (Coleoptera: Byrrhoidea) based on larval, pupal and adult characters
The first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of Psephenidae, based on 143 morphological characters of adults, larvae and pupae and coded for 34 taxa, representing three outgroups and 31 psephenid genera, including four undescribed ones, indicated that the monophyly of the family and subfamilies is supported.
