Se revisan las dos especies previamente descritas del genero Cantabrogeus (Coleoptera, Leiodidae, Cholevinae, Leptodirini), y se describen tres especies nuevas: Cantabrogeus antimachus sp. n., C. cultellus sp. n. y C. fresnedai sp. n. Una de ellas (C. antimachus sp. n.) es triploide (3n = 33) y la primera especie partenogenetica conocida de Leiodidae. Se analizan y se discuten las relaciones existentes entre los diferentes taxones a partir de los caracteres morfologicos externos y las…

A chromosomal investigation of some European Leiodidae (Coleoptera), with particular focus on Spanish subterranean Leptodirini
TLDR
Karyotypes are shown for Leiodes calcarata, Catops coracinus Kellner, 1846, Cantabrogeus luquei, and Quaestus (Quaesticulus) pasensis, showing that the higher chromosome number previously reported refers exclusively to the more derived Leptodirini (“infraflagellates”) whereas the lower number refers to the less derived surface-dwelling forms.
Life-history specialization was not an evolutionary dead-end in Pyrenean cave beetles
TLDR
Using a comprehensive molecular phylogeny, a low number of independent origins of the reduction in the number of instars are found, with a single transition, dated to the Oligocene–Miocene, from 3 to 2 and then 1 instar in the Pyrenees, the best-studied area.

Phylogeny of western Mediterranean Leptodirini, with an emphasis on genital characters (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
TLDR
The phylogeny of the western Mediterranean lineages (Iberian Peninsula, Pyrenees and Sardinia) is assessed based on a cladistic analysis of fourteen characters of external morphology and twenty characters of the male and female genitalia, as well as that of some ‘phyletic series’, suggesting the respective monophyletic origin of the Leptodirini from the Pyrenee and Mediterranean coast plus Sardinia were not monophylets.
Révision du genre Perriniella Jeannel et description d'une nouvelle espèce des Pyrénées françaises (Coleoptera: Leiodidae, Cholevinae, Leptodirini)
TLDR
Sa dispersion, qui s'est probablement effectuee a travers les eboulis quaternaires, est discutee en fonction des donnees actuelles sur sa localisation geographique and son biotope inhabituels pour une espece presentant des troglomorphies si prononcees.
Two new taxa of Leptodirini (Coleoptera: Leiodidae, Cholevinae) from the Cantabrian cornice (Asturias, Spain). Biogeographical observations
TLDR
Keys for a better, more precise placement of the new taxa are given as well as biogeographical observations and a study on colonization by the species captured in the four caves examined in this paper, in comparison with other morphologically similar species or those living in neighbouring areas.
Polyploidization, hybridization and geographical parthenogenesis.

TLDR
The author argues that asexuality might not be the key factor explaining the distribution of clones in species with geographical parthenogenesis, and that hybridization, rather than polyploidization, is the primary cause for success in these cases, mainly because of the variation that can be created through hybridization.
Geographical Parthenogenesis: Opportunities for Asexuality
TLDR
A novel model for those asexual organisms that have originated from hybridization is presented, which increases frequencies of new origins of asexuality, but decreases fitness of sexual progenitor species.
Asexuality alone does not explain the success of clonal forms in insects with geographical parthenogenesis.
TLDR
This study surveys the literature on arthropods with geographical parthenogenesis in an attempt to clarify what evidence there is for the different phenomena explaining the success of the clonal forms and support that asexuality is not the only factor underlying thesuccess of all asexuals.
Ancient origin of a Western Mediterranean radiation of subterranean beetles
TLDR
The results suggest that by the Early-Mid Oligocene the main lineages of Western Mediterranean Leptodirini had developed all modifications to the subterranean life and were already present in the main geographical areas in which they are found today.
