Abstract We synthesize data on all known extant and fossil Coleoptera family-group names for the first time. A catalogue of 4887 family-group names (124 fossil, 4763 extant) based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given. A total of 4492 names are available, 183 of which are permanently invalid because they are based on a preoccupied or a suppressed type genus. Names are listed in a classification framework. We recognize as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663…

Taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of the prionoceridae (insecta: coleoptera: cleroidea) in the indochinese subregion

The aims of this dissertation are to overcome at least parts of the huge "taxonomic impediment" which has encumbered research on "malacoderm" beetles in Indochina and filling the various gaps in knowledge that have accumulated during almost 90 years of taxonomic neglect.
