The comprehensive phylogeny of the superfamily Elateroidea (Coleoptera: Elateriformia).
Elateriformia consists of Dascilloidea, Buprestoidea (jewel beetles), Byrrhoidea and Elateroidea (click beetles, fireflies and relatives). Numerous elateroid lineages contain taxa with modified… Expand
Position and Relationships of Ripiphoridae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea) Inferred from Ribosomal and Mitochondrial Molecular Markers
Abstract. Ripiphoridae phylogeny inferred from rRNA and mtDNA markers and 23 taxa from four subfamilies is presented. Despite much denser sampling than previous studies and completeness of the… Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the Byrrhoidea–Buprestoidea complex (Coleoptera, Elateriformia)
The superfamilies of Elateriformia have been in a state of flux since their establishment. The recent classifications recognize Dascilloidea, Buprestoidea, Byrrhoidea and Elateroidea. The most… Expand
Redescription and relationships of Pseudothilmanus Pic (Coleoptera: Rhagophthalmidae)—a long-term neglected glow-worm beetle genus from the Himalayas
Pseudothilmanus Pic, 1918 is redescribed and two species, P. alatus Pic, 1918 and P. marginatus Pic, 1918, are placed in the genus. The subgenus Drilothilmanus Pic, 1918 is synonymized with the… Expand
Comparative antennal morphology of male Drilini with special reference to the sensilla (Coleoptera: Elateridae: Agrypninae)
Abstract The click-beetle tribe Drilini (Coleoptera: Elateridae: Agrypninae) contains species with soft-bodied, fully winged males and larviform apterous females. Currently, three genera comprising… Expand
The phylogenetic position of Artematopodidae (Coleoptera: Elateroidea), with description of the first two Eurypogon species from China
The Artematopodidae is a species-poor beetle family with contentious relationships to byrrhoid and elateroid families. Recent molecular phylogenetic analyses brought ambiguous results based on a… Expand
Review of Dolichostyrax Aurivillius (Cerambycidae, Lamiinae) in Borneo, with descriptions of three new genera and the first case of (ovo)viviparity in the long-horned beetles
Abstract We reviewed the species of genus Dolichostyrax Aurivillius (Cerambycidae: Morimopsini) from Borneo, which included the redescriptions of two species – Dolichostyrax moultoni Aurivillius,… Expand
A review of the genus Selasia (Elateridae: Agrypninae: Drilini) in the Palaearctic Region.
The six species of the soft-bodied elaterid genus Selasia Laporte (Agrypninae: Drilini) from the Palaearctic Region are reviewed: S. arabica Geisthardt, 2003 (Yemen, Oman, The Kingdom of Saudi… Expand
