Comparative analysis of morphospace of Neotropical Sericini (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae): disparity in the light of species diversity and activity patterns
The striking diversity among herbivorous Scarabaeoidea is still poorly understood. Therefore, we compare in these work linear measurements of body features of Neotropical and Old World linages of

A review of the genera Prismognathus Motschulsky and Cladophyllus Houlbert (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea: Lucanidae) from China, with the description of two new species
TLDR
The Chinese species of Prismognathus (in the present sense) and Cladophyllus are reviewed, with the male and female genitalia illustrated.
Description of a new species of Glaresidae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea) from the Jehol Biota of China with a geometric morphometric evaluation
TLDR
The results suggest that Glaresidae, likely the sister group of all other extant Scarabaeoidea, had been established in the Early Cretaceous and contained larger species than today.
Modelling sponge species diversity using a morphological predictor: a tropical test of a temperate model
TLDR
This study investigated relationships between sponge species diversity and richness at six tropical West Indian Ocean localities in a number of habitat types, finding that species Diversity and richness were significantly correlated.
Geometric morphometric analysis of the pronotum and elytron in stag beetles: insight into its diversity and evolution
TLDR
This study provides insights into the morphological variations and evolutionary history of the pronotum and elytron in four subfamilies of stag beetles, and it illuminates the relationship between morphological diversity and species richness.

Scarabaeid Beetles of the Genus Bradycinetulus and Closely Related Genera in the United States
The group of beetles reviewed in this paper have long been known under the name Bolboceras. The species found in the United States were last revised by Charles Schaeffer, 1906 (Trans. Amer. Ent. Soc,
Diversity and morphological disparity of desmid assemblages in Central European peatlands
TLDR
The results indicate the relative importance of mountain peat bogs for the total morphological diversity of Desmidiales within the region that could not be ascertained solely from species diversity data.
Glaresidae, archaeopteryx of the Scarabaeoidea (Coleoptera)
Abstract. Evidence is presented that Glaresidae are the most primitive livinj scarabaeoid group and as such represent the sister group of the rest of the Scarabaeoidea. This is based on a review of
Disparity and Evolutionary Rate Do Not Explain Diversity Patterns in Muroid Rodents (Rodentia: Muroidea)
TLDR
No correlation is found between diversity and disparity/evolutionary rate and cranial morphometric and molecular phylogenetic data from 317 muroid rodent species and dipodoid outgroups, analyzed using three-dimensional geometric morphometrics, indicating that evolution of new Cranial morphologies may not play an important role in the diversification of murid rodents.
