Scarabaeid Beetles of the Genus Bradycinetulus and Closely Related Genera in the United States

  title={Scarabaeid Beetles of the Genus Bradycinetulus and Closely Related Genera in the United States},
  author={Oscar Ling Cartwright},
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, vol. 32, pp. 249-254). At that time five species were placed in Horn's genus Bradycinetus, later incorrectly synonymized under Bolboceras (see synonymy under Bradycinetulus) , and three were assigned to Bolboceras. Of these three, Scarabaeus lazarus Fabricius had been placed in Eucanthus by…

Bolboceras Kirby, 1819 (July) (Insecta, Coleoptera): proposed precedence over Odonteus Samouelle, 1819 (June)
The purpose of this application is to conserve the generic name Bolboceras Kirby, 1819 for a group of scarab beetles by giving it conditional precedence over the older name Odonteus Samouelle, 18 19 whenever they are considered to be synonyms.

Case 3713 — Scarabaeus ferrugineus Palisot de Beauvois, 1809 (currently Bradycinetulus ferrugineus) (Insecta: Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea): proposed conservation of the specific name
It is proposed that Scarabaeus ferrugineus Palisot de Beauvois, 1809 be conserved by ruling that it is not invalid by reason of being a junior homonym of Scarabaeidae, 1789.
The generic classification of the Bolboceratini of the Australian region, with descriptions of four new genera (Scarabaeidae : Geotrupinae)
The relationships of the Australia–New Guinea representatives of the tribe Bolboceratini to the world fauna are examined. The results indicate that, with the exception of the genus Eucanthus, all
