  title={An annotated checklist of Cantharoidea (Coleoptera) of Russia and adjacent territories},
  author={S. V. Kazantsev},
Provided is an annotated checklist of the superfamily Cantharoidea of Russia and adjacent territo- ries that constituted until 1991 the USSR. The checklist includes five families, Omalisidae, Drilidae, Lampyridae, Lycidae and Cantharidae, 61 genera and 408 species. Four families, with 52 genera and 275 species, are registered for Russia, of which three species, Libnetus granicollis Kie- senwetter, 1879 (Lycidae), Malthodes kurosawai Wittmer and M. misellus Kiesenwetter (Cantharidae), are…

Evolution and Classification of Beetles

The beetle ovipositor represents the plesiomorphic form of that found in neuropteroids, so Coleoptera could not be the sister group of any particular neuropteroid order; but Hamilton (48) argued on the basis of wing venation thatColeoptera and Megaloptera are sister groups.
