Existing classifications of Tenebrionidae are reviewed briefly. The inclusion of the families Alleculidae, Lagriidae, and Nilionidae in Tenebrionidae is confirmed. The splitting off from this complex of a family, Tentyriidae, by Doyen is discussed and rejected. Various taxa which had been included in Tenebrionidae are excluded, amongst which Syrphetodes, Brouniphylax, Exohadrus, Arthopus, Cotulades, Docalis, and Latometus (=Elascus) have not previously been formally excluded. A new family… Expand
A review of the Pterogeniidae (Coleoptera)
TLDR
The male and particularly the female genitalia provide useful means for species definition and the phylogenetic relationships are discussed based on a cladistic analysis of 23 morphological characters using PAUP. Expand
The Larva of Sirrhas variegatus , sp . nov . , with Notes on the Perimylopidae , Ulodidae ( stat . nov . ) , Zopheridae and Chalcodryidae ( Coleoptera : Tenebrionoidea )
Sirrhas Champion and its type, S. limbatus Champion, are redescribed and S. variegatus, sp. nov., is described, along with its presumed larva. The two species are distinguished in a key and commentsExpand

Sirrhas Champion and its type, S. limbatus Champion, are redescribed and S. variegatus, sp. nov., is described, along with its presumed larva. The two species are distinguished in a key and commentsExpand
Les Pythidae paléarctiques (Coleoptera)
TLDR
The paper gives a review of the palearctic representatives of the Pyrochroidae, in which 7 subfamilies, 10 genera and 49 species are recognised and the following synonyms are established. Expand
Relationships of Actizeta and Cnemeplatiini (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
A key to subtribes and genera is presented, and Actizeta is described from adult and larval characters, and the tribe Idisiini is identified as the most probable sister‐group on the basis of resemblances particularly in female genitalia and larvae. Expand
CLADISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE NEOTROPICAL TRIBE NYCTELIINI (COLEOPTERA: TENEBRIONIDAE)
TLDR
The study confirms the importance of the use of new characters, such as genital structures and internal morphology in the classification of Tenebrionidae and shows that Nycteliini is a monophyletic group characterized by two synapomorphies from internal morphology and female genitalia. Expand
The family and subfamily classification and New Zealand genera of Pythidae and Scraptiidae (Coleoptera)
TLDR
Strong resemblances between some PllipalPlnae and Pyrochroidae appear to have arisen through convergent evolution, and the following genera are reassigned to the families indicated. Expand
A Revision of the Peruvian Edrotini (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Pimeliinae)
TLDR
This article includes diagnoses for five genera and redescriptions or descriptions, distributional data, habitat records and habitus photographs for six species, and a dichotomous key for all 11 Peruvian species of Edrotini, drawings of new species' male genitalic features, and distribution maps are provided. Expand
Catalogue of Tenebrionidae (Coleoptera) of North America
TLDR
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. Expand
The oldest Tenebrionidae (Coleoptera) of the subfamily Diaperinae and the tribe Scaphidemini from the Paleocene of Menat (France)
The oldest tenebrionid beetle Palaeobasanus neli gen. et sp. n. of the tribe Scaphidemini (subfamily Diaperinae) is described from the Paleocene of Menat (Thanetian) in France. The new extinct genusExpand
