The Australian lucanid genus Ryssonotus MacLeay, 1819 is redefined and reduced to one species: R. nebulosus (Kirby, 1819). The supposed senior synonym of this species, Lucanus foveolatus Thunberg, 1806 is a junior synonym of the North American species Lucanus capreolus (Linnaeus, 1763) (new synonym). Safrina new genus, is described for the remaining species formerly in Ryssonotus and three new species: S. dekeyzeri new species, S. grandis (Lea, 1915) new combination, S. jaedoni new species, S…

The genus Lamprima Latreille, 1804, which is revised, is revised and five species are recognised: one in New Guinea, two on isolated western Pacific islands, one in northeastern New South Wales, and a common widespread species in eastern and southern Australia.

The morphology of New Zealand’s stag beetles is discussed and illustrated and morphological structures including male and female genitalia are illustrated for the endemic species and, when appropriate, for the exotic species.

NOTES ON LARVAL LUCANIDAE (COLEOPTERA)

The relationships among the major groups of Lucanidae are discussed, with an emphasis on the more primitive genera and the application of larval characters.

BIOSECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF EXOTIC BEETLES ATTACKING TREES AND SHRUBS IN NEW ZEALAND

A survey of exotic beetles that attack trees or shrubs in New Zealand found 51 species of mainly Australian and European origin, suggesting that exotic phytophagous beetles pose a greater biosecurity threat to exotics than to indigenous species.

Biological Invasion Caused by Commercialization of Stag Beetles in Japan

The molecular genetic analysis of populations of Dorcus titanus, which is a major native species, indicates signs of genetic introgression by exotic strains imported from South-east Asia, and investigation of stag beetles imported and sold shows that a lot of mites are coming into Japan attached to the beetles.
