About this book

Language: English

From the foreword:

"Over the past few years, I have been privileged to study or revise a rich and highly interesting material of several little-known groups of longicorn beetles from eastern and southeastern Asia. Some of the results have recently been published elsewhere (e.g. Miroshnikov, 2012, 2013; Miroshnikov & Lin, 2012; Miroshnikov et al., 2013). However, it was decided to publish several papers in a single volume. These papers treat different taxonomic groups, but they are united by the region and approach. In particular, all papers are illustrated with a large number of colour pictures, deemed to be especially useful in complementing the information contained in the text. In addition, a good number of new taxa, mostly of the species rank, are described, and several new keys presented. [...] An active and successful research in the taxonomy of the beetle family Cerambycidae, both in some larger regions of, and generally in, Asia, has become greatly advanced due to the works of Dr. Judson Linsley Gressitt (1914-1982), an outstanding specialist whose centenary soon will be celebrated. Therefore, I feel very fortunate to dedicate the entire present miscellany, as well as several new species, to the memory of that prominent scientist.[...]"
