A Taxonomic Review of Anobiinae and Dorcatominae (Ptinidae: Coleoptera) In Egypt

Two subfamilies of Egyptian Ptinid were taxonomically studied during this work, the first subfamily Dorcatominae represented by one species, Synanobium parmatum and the second subfamily Anobiinae

First Record of Trochoideus desjardinsi Guérin-Méneville, 1838 (Coleoptera: Endomychidae: Pleganophorinae) from Cuba

Because of the beetle’s ability to survive on a variety of stored products and/or the fungi that grow on those products, it has the potential to be economically important.

A new coleopterous family Wabbelidae fam. nov. (Coleoptera: Cucujoidea) from Baltic amber (Cenozoic, Paleogene, Eocene)

Baltic amber is comparatively young (as compared with inclusions from Burmese, Lebanese, Spanish, and other Cretaceous amber deposits) and includes almost modern insect fauna at the family level. The

Myrmecophily in beetles (Coleoptera): evolutionary patterns and biological mechanisms

A view of the diversity of myrmecophilous beetles is provided and the mode of colony exploitation employed during the ini tial phase of evolution, combined with the potentia l evolvability of the body plan, has important consequences for subse q ent evolutionary steps.

A third new genus and species of spider beetle, Okamninus annae n. gen., n. sp. (Coleoptera: Ptinidae), from Dominican amber

This new genus can be distinguished from all other spider beetles by a conspicuous bilobed protrusion on the pronotum and can be most closely aligned with the extant spider beetle genus Ptinus linnaeus, although its small body size and nine-segmented antennae are similar to that of the extant genus Pitnus GorHaM.

Molecular systematics and evolution of the Ptinidae (Coleoptera: Bostrichoidea) and related families

The Ptinidae (Coleoptera: Bostrichoidea) are a cosmopolitan, ecologically diverse, but poorly known group of Coleoptera and, excluding a few economic pests, species are rarely encountered. This first

New species of the myrmecophile Polyplocotes Westwood (Coleoptera: Ptinidae) from South Australia

Six new species of the Australian myrmecophilous ptinid genus Polyplocotes are described from South Australia. Three are from the deserts of central Australia, one from the Franklin Islands in the

Review of the Natural History of the Handsome Fungus Beetles (Coleoptera: Cucujoidea: Endomychidae)

Unusual endomychid behaviors and habitats are reviewed, with particular attention to gregariousness and defensive strategies within Endomychidae.

The Coleoptera of the Seychelles islands

The project reported the identifi cation of a large number of previously undescribed species and the material initiated taxonomic revisions of most of the groups concerned, which are being published in widely dispersed academic journals, most of which are not available in Seychelles.

A revision of the South African myrmecophile Diplocotidus (Coleoptera: Ptinidae)

The southern African myrmecophilous ptinine genus, Diplocotidus Péringuey, is redescribed, and two new species are described. New species and collection localities increase the known distribution
