The genus Alphitobius Stephens (Coleoptera, Tenebrionidae, Alphitobiini) in Africa and adjacent islands

A catalogue of the tribe Sepidiini Eschscholtz, 1829 (Tenebrionidae, Pimeliinae) of the world
This catalogue includes all valid family-group, genus- group, and species-group names (1009 species and subspecies) of Sepidiini darkling beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Pimeliinae), and their available synonyms.
New Records of Stemmoderus singularis Spinola (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
This species was originally described from Senegal, but it has since been recorded from the following Afrotropical countries and is assumed to be termitophilous due to its strikingly complex and apomorphic characters.
A taxonomic review of the genus Clitobius with description of a new species from Oman (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
Based on external and internal morphological characters, Apithesis obesa Waterhouse, 1881 is redescribed and transferred from the tribe Ulomini to the tribe Opatrini where it is incorporated in Clitobius Mulsant & Rey, 1859.
Revision of the genera Anaedus, Dichastops, Luprops and Sphingocorse from South Africa and adjacent regions, with description of Capeluprops n. gen. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Lagriinae: Lupropini) 1
The new genus Capeluprops has an allopatric distribution range exclusively in the Cape Region of South Africa and the wingless, newly described species have restricted distribution ranges, partly sympatric, in mature forests or alpine zones of certain mountain ranges.
Review of genus-group names in the family Tenebrionidae (Insecta, Coleoptera)
A review of genus-group names for darkling beetles in the family Tenebrionidae (Insecta: Coleoptera) is presented, along with data on the distribution of valid genera and subgenera within major biogeographical realms.
Revision of the genus Rhyzodina Chevrolat, 1873 (Coleoptera, Tenibrionidae, Rhysopaussini)
The historic type material of the species of the genus Rhyzodina Chevrolat, 1873, is for the first time revised and several morphological characters and genitalia supporting the validity of all three taxa are presented.
The species of the African genus Mimocellus Wasmann (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), with descriptions of three new species 1
The external morphology suggests that at least the adult beetles do not have a close association with the ter- mites themselves, but are probably associated only with the cultivated fungi or accumulated debris in the nests of the termites.
Catalogue of the World Stizopina (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Opatrini)
The catalogue of all known World genera and species of the subtribe Stizopina is presented and the type species are designated for the following genus-group names: Blacodes Mulsant et Rey, 1859.
