Opilo nigropiceus Kuwert was described from a specimen collected in Bagamoyo on the north coast of Tanzania, though the description was devoid of informative morphological detail (Kuwert 1893). Without comment, Schenkling (1915) transferred O. nigropiceus to Thanasimodes Murray, a genus erected by Murray (1867) for a single specimen from 'Old Calabar' (south Nigeria) described as Thanasimodes metallicus Murray. Thanasimodes presently contains ten species and is distributed widely throughout…

Definition and Revision of the Orthrius-group of genera (Coleoptera, Cleridae, Clerinae)
An “Orthrius-group” of genera is proposed, and defi ned to include Aphelochroa Quedenfeldt, 1885; Caridopus Schenkling, 1908; Dozocolletus Chevrolat, 1842; Gyponyx Gorham, 1883; Languropilus Pic,

TLDR
The relations of the Old-Calabar Monohammi are to the Indian species, and not to the European and N^orth-American, which differ from them somewhat in facies and more especially in texture.
A molecular phylogeny of the checkered beetles and a description of Epiclininae a new subfamily (Coleoptera: Cleroidea: Cleridae)
TLDR
The first molecular phylogeny of the clerid lineage within the superfamily Cleroidea is provided to examine the two most recently proposed hypotheses of higher level classification and support the monophyly of many proposed subfamilies but were not entirely congruent with either current classification system.
