Abstract In North America, the tribe Cholevini (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) is composed of the genera Prionochaeta Horn with 1 species, Catoptrichus Murray with 1 species, Sciodrepoides Hatch with 3 species, and Catops Paykull with 17 species. The species are mostly forest inhabitants that feed on carrion and other decaying materials, but some occur in tundra habitats, in caves, and in rodent burrows. Resurrected status is proposed for Sciodrepoides terminans (LeConte). The subspecies status of… 
Systematics, distributions, and bionomics of the Neoeocatopsgen. nov. and Nemadus of North America (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae: Anemadini)
This paper completes a review and revision of the tribe Anemadini in North America, covering the subtribe Eocatopina (new for North America), with the genus Neoeocatops gen. nov. containing one
Observations on the Cave-Associated Beetles (Coleoptera) of Nova Scotia, Canada
The cave-associated invertebrates of Nova Scotia constitute a fauna at a very early stage of post-glacial recolonization. The Coleoptera are characterized by low species diversity. A staphylinid
New Coleoptera records from owl nests in Nova Scotia, Canada
TLDR
A preliminary study of boreal owl and northern sawwhet owl nests from Nova Scotia, Canada revealed the presence of 14 species of Coleoptera, several of which represent significant extensions of their known ranges.
The Leiodidae (Coleoptera) of Atlantic Canada: new records, faunal composition, and zoogeography
TLDR
The regional composition and zoogeography of the Leiodidae in Atlantic Canada are examined and species are grouped in six main categories, refl ecting their distribution in the region.
A New Genus of Leiodid Beetle from Chile, with Generic Key and Species Checklist of Described Neopelatopini (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Camiarinae)
TLDR
This new staphylinoid beetle is described from the Valdivian region of Chile and display morphological affinities with both Leiodidae and Agyrtidae, including a weakly explanate pronotum, leiodid-like antennal club, and loss of aedeagal parameres.
An Annotated Catalog of the Leiodidae (Coleoptera) of the Nearctic Region (Continental North America North of Mexico)
TLDR
An annotated catalog of the 38 genera and 382 species of Leiodidae known to occur in the Nearctic Region of North America north of Mexico and information on types, distributions, and biologies is included.
A revision of the Chinese Catops Paykull 1798 of the Catops fuscus species group (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
TLDR
Five species of the Catops fuscus species group are reported from China and Catops nigricans (Spence 1813) is reported for the first time from China, with important morphological characters illustrated and the distribution of all species in China is mapped.
A revision of the Chinese Catops Paykull 1798 of the Catops fuscus species group (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
Five species of the Catops fuscus species group are reported from China. Three species are newly described: C. hlisnikovskyi n. sp. from the Beijing municipality and Jiangsu province, C. schuelkei n.
Arthropod fauna associated with black vulture and turkey vulture nests (Accipitriformes: Cathartidae) in south-Central Kentucky, USA
TLDR
In insects collected, a majority of the insects collected were either scavengers or accidentals and do not have a strong link with the nest habitat, but taxa associated with guano or feathers for food sources or those that are predacious on fly eggs or larvae appear to have a loose association with these vulture nests.

Diversity and seasonality of Leiodid beetles (Coleoptera : Leiodidae) in an old-growth and a 40-year-old forest in New Hampshire
TLDR
The seasonality and diversity of members of the beetle family Leiodidae were determined for an old-growth and a 40-yr-old forest in New Hampshire, and the dispersal ability of leiodids is presumed to lead to rapid recolonization of the younger forest as food sources become available.
