The ongoing exploration of biodiversity and the implementation of new molecular tools continue to unveil hitherto unknown lineages. Here, we report the discovery of three species of neotenic beetles for which we propose the new family Iberobaeniidae. Complete mitochondrial genomes and rRNA genes recovered Iberobaeniidae as a deep branch in Elateroidea, as sister to Lycidae (net-winged beetles). Two species of the new genus Iberobaenia, Iberobaenia minuta sp. nov. and Iberobaenia lencinai sp… 
The Taxonomy of Neotenic Net-Winged Beetles from China Based on Morphology and Molecular Data (Coleoptera: Lycidae)
TLDR
The ranges of Chinese species define the northernmost distribution limits of Platerodrilus and these limits are probably affected by climatic fluctuations and the low ability of neotenics to rapidly colonize distant areas during interglacial periods.
The discovery of Burmolycus compactus gen. et sp. nov. from the mid-Cretaceous of Myanmar provides the evidence for early diversification of net-winged beetles (Coleoptera, Lycidae)
TLDR
The general appearance of Cretaceous B. compactus is surprisingly similar to extant net-winged beetles and may represent the example of their long-term morphological stasis.
Iberobaenia andujari sp. nov., the Third Species of Iberobaeniidae (Coleoptera: Elateroidea) from Southern Spain
TLDR
A new species of Iberobaenia is described, which differs in the shape of the prothorax and male genitalia and its status is supported by the high genetic divergence of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I mtDNA fragment.
Hidden diversity in the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest: the discovery of Jurasaidae, a new beetle family (Coleoptera, Elateroidea) with neotenic females
TLDR
The discovery of a completely new lineage of soft-bodied neotenic beetles from the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest, which is due to the limited dispersal capability and cryptic lifestyle of its wingless females bound to long-term stable habitats, highlights the importance of the BrazilianAtlantic rainforest as a top priority area for nature conservation.
One less mystery in Coleoptera systematics: the position of Cydistinae (Elateriformia incertae sedis) resolved by multigene phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
Based on the molecular phylogenetic results and examination of morphological characters, the formerly unplaced Cydistinae are transferred into Phengodidae and diagnoses are provided for the newly circumscribed P Zhengodidae, Cydistsinae andCydistus.
Prototrichalus is transferred to the Tenebrionoidea: a comment on , 'The description of Prototrichalus gen. nov. and three new species from Burmese amber supports a mid-Cretaceous origin of the Metriorrhynchini (Coleoptera, Lycidae).'
Abstract Newly available specimens of Prototrichalus Molino-Olmedo et al., 2020 yield further diagnostic characters for the phylogenetic classification of this recently described genus. We show that
The Fossil Record of Elateridae (Coleoptera: Elateroidea): Described Species, Current Problems and Future Prospects
TLDR
An annotated catalogue of all described fossil species in Elateridae is compiled, including their type material, geographic origin, age, bibliography and remarks on their systematic placement, to serve as a comprehensive basis for all subsequent research on the click-beetle fossil record.
Molecular phylogeny reveals the gradual evolutionary transition to soft-bodiedness in click-beetles and identifies sub-Saharan Africa as a cradle of diversity for Drilini (Coleoptera: Elateridae)
TLDR
This work presents the first densely sampled molecular phylogeny of Drilini based on nuclear and mitochondrial markers and describes the gradual transformation of male morphological traits, e.g. the level of sclerotization, structure of mouthparts, loss of the thoracic interlocking mechanism, shortened elytra and expanded larviform abdomen.
Molecular Phylogeny, Diversity and Zoogeography of Net-Winged Beetles (Coleoptera: Lycidae)
TLDR
The lycid phylogeny shows that poor dispersers can be used for reconstruction of dispersal and vicariance history over a long time-span, but the current data are insufficient for reconstructing of the early phase of their diversification.
Phylogenomic analysis resolves the relationships among net‐winged beetles (Coleoptera: Lycidae) and reveals the parallel evolution of morphological traits
TLDR
The results suggest that female neoteny evolved multiple times and may have produced characteristics such as body miniaturization, structural simplification, and others in net‐winged beetles.

Classification of Omalisidae based on molecular data and morphology, with description of Paradrilinae subfam. nov. (Coleoptera: Elateroidea).
TLDR
The DNA based phylogeny suggests that small-bodied males, reduced pronotal carinae and missing elytral costae evolved independently in multiple elateroid lineages in multiple Elateroidea.
Molecular phylogenetics of Elateriformia (Coleoptera): evolution of bioluminescence and neoteny
TLDR
Although key features as soft‐bodiedness, neoteny and bioluminescence in Coleoptera are largely confined to the Elateriformia, they appear to result from multiple origins, showing the propensity of closely related lineages to acquire similar features independently.
Phylogeny and Classification of the Family Lycidae (Insecta: Coleoptera)
TLDR
Lycidae, net winged beetles, have proved difficult to classify using morphological characters, and a revised classification of Lycidae is proposed, where morphological similarities resulting from neoteny are homoplasies and cannot be used for definition of monophyletic lineages.
The beetle tree of life reveals that Coleoptera survived end‐Permian mass extinction to diversify during the Cretaceous terrestrial revolution
TLDR
A phylogeny of beetles based on DNA sequence data from eight nuclear genes, including six single‐copy nuclear protein‐coding genes, for 367 species representing 172 of 183 extant families provides a uniquely well‐resolved temporal and phylogenetic framework for studying patterns of innovation and diversification in Coleoptera.
Soup to Tree: The Phylogeny of Beetles Inferred by Mitochondrial Metagenomics of a Bornean Rainforest Sample
TLDR
A shotgun sequencing approach is tested, whereby mitochondrial genomes are assembled from complex ecological mixtures through mitochondrial metagenomics, and it is demonstrated how the approach overcomes many of the taxonomic impediments to the study of biodiversity.
Multiple ancient origins of neoteny in Lycidae (Coleoptera): consequences for ecology and macroevolution
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Lycidae based on DNA sequences from nuclear (18S and 28S rRNA) and mitochondrial (rrnL, cox1, cob and nad5) genes from a representative set of lineages supported three independent origins of neotenic taxa, contradicting earlier suggestions of recent evolution from dispersive non-neotenics.
Revision of the family Omalisidae (Coleoptera, Elateroidea)
TLDR
The taxonomic revision of the Palaearctic beetle family Omalisidae is presented and each species of the family is presented with a diagnosis, full description, illustrations of male genitalia and a comprehensive bibliography.
The comprehensive phylogeny of the superfamily Elateroidea (Coleoptera: Elateriformia).
TLDR
Molecular phylogeny of Elateroidea confirmed the multiple origins of soft-bodied, neotenic and light emiting lineages and rejected the relationships of hard-bodied Elateridae, Eucnemidae, Throscidae and Cerophytidae, formerly supposed to be a monophylum.
Molecular Phylogeny Reveals High Diversity, Geographic Structure and Limited Ranges in Neotenic Net-Winged Beetles Platerodrilus (Coleoptera: Lycidae)
TLDR
It is suppose that the extremely low dispersal propensity makes Platerodrilus a valuable indicator of uninterrupted persistence of rainforests over a long time span and if the diversity of these neotenic lineages is to be protected, a high dense system of protected areas would be necessary.
