The tribe Platyceroidini is created to accommodate two genera of North American stag beetles, Platyceroides Benesh and Platyceropsis Benesh (Lucanidae: Lucaninae). These genera are removed from the tribe Platycerini Mulsant. 

A new species of stag beetle (Coleoptera: Lucanidae) from California

A new species of Platyceroides Benesh, P. potax, n. sp., is described from the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, USA, and compared to the most similar species, Platyceroides opacus

A new species of Platyceroides Benesh (Coleoptera: Lucanidae) from Oregon.

A new species of Platyceroides Benesh, P. marshalli, n. sp., is described from southwestern Oregon, USA, and compared to the most similar species, P. opacus (Fall) and P. potax Paulsen.

The Platycerus (Coleoptera, Lucanidae) of California, with the recognition of Platycerus cribripennis Van Dyke as a valid species

The Platycerus cribripennis, which is endemic to the coastal mountains of California, is recognized and redescribe as a valid species due to its unique morphology.

0098. A new fossil species of stag beetle from Dominican Republic amber, with Australasian connections (Coleoptera: Lucanidae)

The first New World amber member of the family Lucanidae is described from the Dominican Republic, and it is especially interesting because it is a members of the Australasian genus Syndesus MacLeay.

Correction of existing generic and species concepts in Platyceroidini (Coleoptera: Lucanidae: Lucaninae) and the description of four new species of Platyceroides Benesh.

The endemic North American stag beetle tribe Platyceroidini Paulsen & Hawks (Coleoptera): Lucanidae: Lucaninae is reviewed and the existing generic and species concepts are subsequently corrected.

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.
