Family-group names in Coleoptera (Insecta)
A catalogue of 4887 family-group names based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given, which recognizes as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663 tribes and 740 subtribes.
Checklist of beetles (Coleoptera) of Canada and Alaska. Second edition
Abstract All 8237 species-group taxa of Coleoptera known to occur in Canada and Alaska are recorded by province/territory or state, along with their author(s) and year of publication, in a
The present catalogue contains 1,611 valid genera, 678 valid subgenera, 15,407 valid species, 1,042 valid subspecies and 9,381 names of invalid or nomenclaturally unavailable species-group or
Synoptic classification of the world Tenebrionidae [Insecta: Coleoptera] with a review of family-group names
A synoptic classification of the Tenebrionidae is presented. The family is divided into 10 subfamilies, 96 tribes and 61 subtribes. A catalogue containing 319 family-group names based on 266 genera
Patterns and levels of endemism in the Australian Wet Tropics rainforest: evidence from flightless insects
The level and pattern of endemism among 274 flightless rainforest insects found in the Wet Tropics region of Australia is examined, and candidate refugial and recolonised subregions are identified, consistent with data from palaeoclimatic models and refugia identified using other taxa.
Cretaceous environmental changes led to high extinction rates in a hyperdiverse beetle family
Age estimates reveal an origin after the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction (older than previously thought), followed by the diversification of major lineages during Pangaean and Gondwanan breakups, and it is hypothesized that this pattern is better explained by the concomitant reduction of arid environments starting in the mid-Cretaceous.
Higher level molecular phylogeny of darkling beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
This study reconstructs the first higher level phylogeny based on DNA sequence data for the species‐rich darkling beetles, and investigates the evolutionary history of Tenebrionidae using multiple phylogenetic inference methods to analyse a dataset consisting of eight gene fragments across 404 taxa.
Catalogue of Tenebrionidae (Coleoptera) of North America
This catalogue includes all valid family-group (8 subfamilies, 52 tribes, 14 subtribes), genus-group, and species-group names of darkling beetles known to occur in North America and their available synonyms.
The genera in the second catalogue (1833–1836) of Dejean’s Coleoptera collection
All genus-group names listed in the second edition of the catalogue (1833-1836) of Dejean’s beetle collection are recorded and generic names with at least one available species, the type species and the current status are given.
