About this book

Language: English

Each part of the series presents a revision of a particular group of Indo-Pacific [traditional Oriental Region + Oceania] Buprestidae Leach: taxonomic relations (keys, synonymy, description, variability) and geographical distribution of each included [sub-]species, a critically evaluated phylogenetic reconstruction and biogeographical history of the taxon in question, as well as a discussion of the relevant general systematic and evolutionary phenomena.

The present volume is devoted to the presentation of the subfamily Julodinae Lac., traditionally placed as the second (after exclusively Nearctic Schizopodinae LeC.) in the linearly arranged classifications, and containing two genera: Julodis Esch., widely distributed in the Ethiopian and Palaearctic Regions but only marginally invading westernmost peripheries of the Indo-Pacific, and Sternocera Esch. with relatively speciose subgenus Afrocera sg.n. in Africa and less diversified (only 8 spp.) Sternocers Esch. s.str. in tropical/subtropical areas of continental Asia.
