The genus Balgus Fleutiaux 1920 was currently comprised of nine species and can be easily distinguished from other Thylacosterninae by the presence of tubercles on the pronotal disk. In this paper a taxonomic revision and a reconstruction of the phylogeny of the genus were performed. Morphological data were analyzed using maximum parsimony (MP) and by Bayesian inference (BI). For BI the Mkv model was used. The genus Balgus and eight of the nine species were redescribed. The subspecies B… Expand

Phylogeny of the Thylacosterninae (Coleoptera, Elateridae)
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Elateridae subfamily Thylacosterninae was studied using morphological characters and mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequences, and the evolution of bioluminescence is optimized as a feature originating in the ancestors of clicking elateroids. Expand
New species of Dilobitarsus Latreille with tetra-tuberculated pronotum (Coleoptera, Elateridae, Agrypninae)
TLDR
New species of Dilobitarsus Latreille with tetra-tuberculated pronotum (Coleoptera, Elateridae, Agrypninae) and new records for D. quadrituberculatus are included. Expand
Austrelater, gen. nov. (Coleoptera : Elateridae), with a description of the larva and comments on elaterid relationships
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the genus Austrelater are discussed and a selection of adult and larval characters used in the cladistic analysis are discussed. Expand
The generic names of the beetle family Eucnemidae (Coleoptera)
TLDR
An alphabetical genus-group catalogue of the family Eucnemidae is given with type species citations and correct usage of some misapplied names is emphasized. Expand
Anischia, Perothops and the phylogeny of Elateroidea (Coleoptera: Elateriformia)
TLDR
Cladistic analyses based on adult and larval morphology, as well as CO1 sequence data, place both genera in the Eucnemidae clade within the Elateroidea (sensu stricto) and the subfamily Anischiinae Fleutiaux, 1936 is placed in a clade containing the more derived eucNemid subfamilies. Expand
Balgus schnusei (Heller) cayennensis, sous-espèce nouvelle d'élatéride de la faune de Guyane française (Coleoptera, Elateridae, Thylacosterninae)
TLDR
A new subspecies of Balgus schnusei (Heller) from French Guyana is described under the name cayennensis in this paper. Expand
Phylogeny of the Coleoptera Based on Morphological Characters of Adults and Larvae
Abstract. In order to infer phylogenetic relationships within the extraordinarily speciesrich order Coleoptera, a cladistic analysis is performed, in which 516 adult and larval morphologicalExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of Elateridae inferred from adult morphology, with special reference to the position of Cardiophorinae.
TLDR
A phylogeny is presented for the Elateridae, inferred from parsimony and Bayesian analyses of 175 adult morphological characters, supporting the hypothesis of at least one independent origin of bioluminescence in theElateridae. Expand
The comprehensive phylogeny of the superfamily Elateroidea (Coleoptera: Elateriformia).
TLDR
Molecular phylogeny of Elateroidea confirmed the multiple origins of soft-bodied, neotenic and light emiting lineages and rejected the relationships of hard-bodied Elateridae, Eucnemidae, Throscidae and Cerophytidae, formerly supposed to be a monophylum. Expand
