The late-instar larva of Sciodrepoides watsoni watsoni is redescribed and the egg, first and second instar and pupa are described for the first time. Immature stages habitus, chaetotaxy, detailed illustrations and details of life cycle are provided. Previous descriptions of larva of S. watsoni are discussed. The structures of larvae of S. watsoni are compared with those of other known larvae of Cholevinae. 
Revisited larval morphology of Thanatophilus rugosus (Coleoptera: Silphidae)
Quantitative and qualitative morphological characters for instar and species identification are described and illustrated, and observations of biology and developmental length for all stages of the species are reported.
An Annotated Catalog of the Leiodidae (Coleoptera) of the Nearctic Region (Continental North America North of Mexico)
An annotated catalog of the 38 genera and 382 species of Leiodidae known to occur in the Nearctic Region of North America north of Mexico and information on types, distributions, and biologies is included.
Thermal summation model and instar determination of all developmental stages of necrophagous beetle, Sciodrepoides watsoni (Spence) (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
The developmental biology and instar determination of Sciodrepoides watsoni (Spence, 1813), a very common species occurring across the Holarctic region, are presented and an additional methodology is introduced for future studies of size-based characteristics, addressing instar identification bias.
Effect of Temperature on the Life Cycle of Euspilotus azureus (Coleoptera: Histeridae), a Predator of Forensic Importance
Euspilotus azureus shows tolerance and adaptability in its ontogenetic stages over a wide temperature range, which is common in generalist species and is applicable to studies of forensic entomology.
Diversity and Seasonality of Small Carrion Beetles (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) in a Protected Cloud Forest in Western Mexico
Abstract. We studied the fauna of leoidid beetles by sampling with carrion-baited traps, between June 2015 to July 2016, in an Acer (maple) dominated cloud forest at Talpa de Allende, Jalisco,
Potential phylogenetic significance of the number of functional abdominal spiracles in beetle pupae, with focus on Staphylinoidea (Coleoptera)
The relation between pupal size and number offunctional spiracles in terrestrial pupae is explored, and it is suggested that those groups with an unexpectedly small number of functional spiracles may have passed through a “small-size bottleneck” in their ancestry.


Description of the Larva of Quaestus (Quaesticulus) Pachecoi (Bolivar, 1915) (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
Chaetotaxy, morphology and measurements indicate that the Q. (Q.) pachecoi has a classic type of development with two instars only and larvae belong to aclassic type according to the Deleurance-Glaçon classification.
Experimental hybridizations between populations of cavernicolous ptomaphagus beetles (Coleoptera: leiodidae; cholevinae)
Markedly lower fecundity, viability, and longevity in the hybrids between morphologically distinct populations from Alabama caves indicate substantial reproductive isolation and suggest that the morphologically distinguishable populations are full species.
The distribution and evolution of cavernicolous Ptomaphagus beetles in the southeastern United States (Coleoptera; Leiodidae; Cholevinae) with new species and records
New data show the presence of additional full-species taxa of cavernicolous Ptomaphagus beetles, bringing to 18 the number of troglobitic species in the southeastern United States. The new species
Comparative morphology of larval Camiarinae (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) Part I. Genus Paragyrtodes Szymczakowski 1966
The first, second and third larval instars of the Australian genus Paragyrtodes Szymczakowski, 1966 are described and the problem of the identity of the larval glands in the family Leiodidae and superfamily Staphylinoidea is discussed.
The life cycle of a Kentucky cave beetle, Ptomaphagus hirtus, (Coleoptera; Leiodidae; Catopinae)
Although the studies on 23 species represent only a small percentage of the total of the 581 Eurasian Bathysciini, they have probably revealed the major evolutionary trends in the adaptation and modification of the life cycles of these eyeless and wingless cave inhabitants.
Morphology and ontogeny of postembryonic larval Agathidium and Anisotoma (Coleoptera, Leiodidae). American Museum novitates ; ; no. 2986.
Two species,Agathidium pulchrum and Anisotoma basalis, feed on mature Myxomycetes, while the other two, Agathidium oniscoides and aristerium, are known to feed on plasmodia of host slime molds.
Spore consumption and life history of Zearagytodes maculifer (Broun) (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) on Ganoderma, its fungal host
The impact of Z. maculifer on host fitness appeared to be neutral as larvae consumed a very small proportion of discharged spores, and both larvae and adults were active in winter.
Contributions to the knowledge of Australian Cholevidae (Catoptidae auct.; Coleoptera)
Taxonomic and faunistic data for 43 of the 56 known Australian species of Cholevidae are presented, based on abundant previously unstudied material, and a key to the Australian genera of Nemadini is provided.
Systematics, distributions, and bionomics of the small carrion beetles (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae: Cholevini) of North America
Abstract In North America, the tribe Cholevini (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) is composed of the genera Prionochaeta Horn with 1 species, Catoptrichus Murray with 1 species, Sciodrepoides Hatch with 3
A system is proposed for naming setae and discussing setal pattems among aleocharine larvae based on the setal patterns present on larvae of Atheta coriaria Kraatz, which has a relatively generalized chaetotaxy.
