About this book

Originally published in 1940, this book examines the Fabrician coleopteran specimens in the Hunterian Collection at Glasgow University. In this second of two volumes, Staig describes examples of the endomychidae, coccinellidae, helodidae, buprestidae, elateridae, tenebrionidae, oedemeridae, rhipiphordae, meloidae and pyrochroidae found in the collection, with drawings of specific beetles in their then-current state of preservation. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in entomology.
