The Species of the Subgenus Leptoferonia Casey (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Pterostichus )

  title={The Species of the Subgenus Leptoferonia Casey (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Pterostichus )},
  author={Hilary A. Hacker},
The purpose of this paper is to facilitate identification of the species in the subgenus Leptoferonia Casey of the genus Pterostichus Bonelli. As currently defined, the subgenus may be an artificial grouping of species. After the subgenus Hypherpes Chaudoir has been revised, it may be possible to clarify the relationships between the two subgenera and between the species within Leptojeronia. The subgenus Leptoferonia is composed of 21 species that occur from British Columbia south through… 

Description of a new microphthalmous species of Pterostichus Bonelli, 1810 (Coleoptera: Carabidae) from southwestern Oregon and key to species of the subgenus Leptoferonia Casey, 1918

This is the seventh species of microphthalmous Leptoferonia Casey, 1918 to be described, and based on the analysis of DNA data, it is found to be most closely related to another microphthalMous species, P. rothi (Hatch, 1951).

Phylogeny and classification of Hypherpes auctorum (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Pterostichini: Pterostichus)

Analysis of phylogenetic hypothesis for generic and subgeneric taxa putatively in or related to the subgenus Hypherpes Chaudoir shows that these three taxa are well supported as subgenera and reciprocally monophyletic, with the only change to previous taxonomic concepts being the transfer of Pterostichus rothi from Anilloferonia to Leptoferonia.

Pterostichus (Anilloferonia) diana LaBonte (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Pterostichini), a replacement name for P. (A.) lanei (Hatch, 1935), and validity and redescription of P. (A.) malkini (Hatch, 1953).

Pterostichus (Anilloferonia) malkini (Hatch), 1953, was described from a single female collected in 1951, and based on this additional material it is clear this species is valid, which had been uncertain.

Mating marks on museum specimens reveal breeding patterns in species of Pterostichus Bonelli (Carabidae, Pterostichini)

The occurrence throughout the year of beetles that are marked as having mated is consistent with iteroparous beetles with a lifespan of more than one year and also consistent with dynamic phenotypic polyvariance in which the adult activity period is synchronised by adjusting development time.

Catalogue of Geadephaga (Coleoptera, Adephaga) of America, north of Mexico

All scientific names of Trachypachidae, Rhysodidae, and Carabidae (including cicindelines) recorded from America north of Mexico are catalogued and five new genus-group synonymies and 65 new species-groupsynonymies, one newspecies-group status, and 12 new combinations are established.

A catalogue of the primary types of Carabidae (incl. Cicindelinae) in the collections of the United States National Museum of Natural History (USNM) (Coleoptera)

The present paper provides data on all 287 primary types of Carabidae on hand through completion of this manuscript, and serves as a feasibility model for computerization of the USNM insect type collections.

Palaeoenvironmental interpretation of Middle and Late Wisconsinan fossil coleopteran assemblages from western Olympic Peninsula, Washington, USA

Organic sediments exposed in a seacliff near Kalaloch, Washington, contain abundant, well-preserved beetle remains. Fossil assemblages dating from about 48 000 to 40 000 yr BP are dominated by
