This paper is a review and revision of the tribe Catopocerini (Coleoptera: Leoididae: Catopocerinae) of North America. It covers the following genera: Catopocerus Motschulsky, 1870 with five species east of the Mississippi River and the resurrected genus Pinodytes Horn, 1880 with 42 species in North America west of the Mississippi River. All species in the tribe are eyeless and wingless inhabitants of forest soil and litter. Larvae and adults probably feed on subterranean fungi. Pinodytes Horn…

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.
The Dynastinae of the island of Saba, Dutch Caribbean (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae).
TLDR
Three species, belonging to the three tribes Cyclocephalini, Pentodontini and Phileurini, are newly recorded from Saba and are discussed, with summaries of all relevant information from the West Indies.
Prediction and Comparison of Dissochae- tus Distributions According to Biogeo- graphical Realm, Country, and Trap Type
Introduction Modeling species distributions is a powerful tool that has many applications to conservation, including forecasting potential distributions of invasive species and predicting future

Eyeless arthropods of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador: composition and origin of the cryptozoic fauna of a young, tropical, oceanic archipelago.
TLDR
Caves and soils are inhabited by ten eyeless or reduced-eyed species which have related fully-eyed epigean species, usually on the same island, indicating relatively recent (possibly parapatric) adaptive radiation into subterranean environments.
Systematic position of Perkovskius Lafer 1989 (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Catopocerinae), with description of a second species from the Far East of Russia
TLDR
Two species from the Far East of Russia differ in the general habitus, the shape of aedeagus and apex of paramere in males, and in the morphology of the VIIIth and IXth abdominal segments (ventrite VIII, spermatheca) in females.
OMALONOMUS RELICTUS , AN UNUSUAL NEW GENUS AND NEW SPECIES (COLEOPTERA: STAPHYLINIDAE, OMALHNAE) OF BLIND ROVE BEETLE; A PREGLACIAL (TERTIARY?) RELICT IN THE CYPRESS HILLS, ALBERTA–SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA
TLDR
The occurrence of this blind, slightly pigmented, flightless beetle in the soil of the Cypress Hills supports the hypothesis that at least part of this area was unglaciated and served as a refugium during late Pleistocene glacial advances.
Phylogenetic analysis of Staphyliniformia (Coleoptera) based on characters of larvae and adults
TLDR
It is recommended that series names are eliminated from the classification of Polyphaga, at least for the more ‘primitive’ groups, and poor resolution at the base of the trees and the placement of some nonstaphyliniform taxa as a sister group to a clade comprising Scarabaeoidea, Hydrophiloidea and HisteroideA suggests that Staphyl iniformia may be paraphyletic.
Ecological studies of hypogeous fungi. II. Sporocarp phenology in a western Oregon Douglas Fir stand
TLDR
Sporocarp phenology of hypogeous or subterranean fruiting fleshy fungi was studied between March 1972 and March 1975 in a 40- to 65-year-old Douglas fir stand in western Oregon, with peaks in May–June and October.
Symposium: Origins of Arthropod Fauna of the Southeastern United States: Biogeographic Affinities of Pselaphid Beetles of the Eastern United States
TLDR
The family Pselaphidae in eastern North America consists of 67 genera and approximately 352 species, of which thirty genera are endemic to the region and biogeographic affinities were not determined for 34 genera.
Relictual Amphibians and Old‐Growth Forests
Terrestrial and aquatic herpetofauna were sam- pled by pitfall traps, time-constrained searches, and area- constrained searches (stream sites only) over a three-year period to examine the importance
AGE AND ENVIRONMENT: A SURVEY OF NORTH AMERICAN TERTIARY FLORAS IN RELATION TO PALEOECOLOGY1
TLDR
Relationship between geologic age and the generic composition of Cenozoic floras is proposed as a means of validating the age assignment of continental deposits bearing plant fossils.

TLDR
In attempting to review and classify the major intercontinental disjunctions in the geographic ranges of seed plants, six guiding principles are followed where possible and possible explanations for the major discontinuities are discussed.
