Abstract The beetle fauna of Canada was assessed, including estimates of yet unreported diversity using information from taxonomists and COI sequence clusters in a BOLD (Barcode of Life Datasystems) COI dataset comprising over 77,000 Canadian records. To date, 8302 species of Coleoptera have been recorded in Canada, a 23% increase from the first assessment in 1979. A total of 639 non-native beetle species have become established in Canada, with most species in the Staphylinidae (153 spp… Expand
Acari of Canada
TLDR
It is conservatively estimated that nearly 10,000 species of mites occur in Canada, but the actual number could be 15,000 or more, which means that at least 70% of Canada’s mite fauna is yet unrecorded. Expand
The diversity of terrestrial arthropods in Canada
TLDR
Based on data presented in 29 papers published in the Biota of Canada Special Issue of ZooKeys and data provided herein about Zygentoma, more than 44,100 described species of terrestrial arthropods are now known from Canada, representing more than a 34% increase in the number of described species reported 40 years ago.

DNA barcodes reveal 63 overlooked species of Canadian beetles (Insecta, Coleoptera).
TLDR
This study demonstrates the power of DNA barcoding to detect overlooked and newly arrived taxa in Coleoptera based on DNA barcode data and morphological analysis of the barcoded specimens. Expand
A Five-Year Study of the Flying Beetles (Coleoptera) from a Grassland and an Adjacent Woods in Southern Québec (Canada)
TLDR
It is considered that the curve of the cumulative number of species for each trap over 33 months in five years may indicate a good estimation of the flying beetle species richness in a site, particularly E. luridus and M. nigrescens. Expand
Are subcortical rove beetles truly Holarctic? An integrative taxonomic revision of north temperate Quedionuchus (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Staphylininae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that species-level diversity has been greatly underestimated in this lineage and none of its members are Holarctic, and complete allopatric divergence across Beringia in obligate forest beetles is proposed. Expand
An Integrative Taxonomic Review of the Quedius erythrogaster Mannerheim Species Group in North America (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Quediini)
Abstract Like many other members of the Microsaurus Dejean lineage of Quedius Stephens (Staphylinidae: Staphylininae: Quediini), rove beetles of the erythrogaster species group are facultatively orExpand

Molecular phylogeny, evolution and classification of the Hydrophilidae (Coleoptera)
TLDR
The phylogeny and evolutionary history of the water scavenger beetles (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae) are inferred from comprehensive analyses of DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial genes COI, COII and 16S and the nuclear genes 18S, 28S and arginine kinase, suggesting that the smaller subfamilies are derived from within the larger hydrophilinae.

History of Coleoptera collecting in New Brunswick, Canada: advancing our knowledge of the Coleoptera fauna in the early 21st century
TLDR
Among these specimens are the first occurrences of a number of adventive species to the Maritime provinces: Quedius mesomelinus (Marsham) (Staphylinidae) (Majka and Smetana 2007), Attagenus unicolor japonicas Reitter (Dermestidae) and others, including many that were the first records for New Brunswick and the region.

Cryptic diversity in the New World burying beetle fauna: Nicrophorus hebes Kirby, 1837; new status as a resurrected name (Coleoptera: Silphidae: Nicrophorinae)
TLDR
This study brings the New World total to 22 species for the genus, and given the rarity of N. hebes, and its tight association with wetlands, justifies further investigation into its conservation status. Expand
