  pages={1 - 297}
Abstract Here we present a complete revision of the species of Baconia. Up until now there have been 27 species assigned to the genus (Mazur, 2011), in two subgenera (Binhister Cooman and Baconia s. str.), with species in the Neotropical, Nearctic, Palaearctic, and Oriental regions. We recognize all these species as valid and correctly assigned to the genus, and redescribe all of them. We synonymize Binhister, previously used for a polyphyletic assemblage of species with varied relationships in… Expand
Phylogeny and generic limits in New World Exosternini (Coleoptera: Histeridae: Histerinae)

Case 3610 Phelister Marseul, 1853 (Insecta, Coleoptera, histeridae): proposed conservation of usage
To avoid the nomenclatural instability that would result from following the Principle of Priority, it is proposed that all type fixations for Phelisters Marseul, 1853 preceding that of Phelister haemorrhous Marseul), 1853 by Kryzhanovskij & Reichardt (1976) be set aside. Expand
