About this book

A synopsis of the Tribe Lachnophorini (Coleoptera: Carabidae) of the Western and Eastern Hemispheres is provided: 15 Western Hemisphere genera (mostly Neotropical) and three Eastern Hemisphere genera (Paleotropical and Australian) including five genera previously misplaced in carabid classifications. In addition, a complete revision of the genus Asklepia Liebke 1938 with four new combinations and the description of twenty-three new species in the genus is presented.

The synopsis includes a key to genera among the Lachnophorini, as well as a key to the species of the Neotropical genus Asklepia establishing the groundwork for future taxonomic work on these morphologically and strikingly varied beetles. In turn, this classification provides a rational basis for exploration of diversity and divergence within each of the lachnophorine genera.
