About this book

Language: English

Pictorial of Insect Type Specimens Deposited in Guizhou University deals with the type specimens of 734 insect species of Mantodea (Thespidae), Phasmatodae (Phasmatidae), Homoptera (Cicadellidae, Cicadellin, Delphacidae, Ricaniidae, Cixiidae, Dictyopharidae, Achilidae, Tropiduchidae, Issidae, Caliscelidae, Lophopidae) and Diptera (Stratiomydidae), which were established by the entomologists at the Institute of Entomology, Guizhou University, from 1983 to 2014. The type of each species is illustrated by a set of photographs including body habitus (dorsal and lateral views), face and holotype lables and provided a brief information about type locality and orginal publication. Appendices, reflecting achievements in insect systematics at the institute, include lists of 20 monographs, 535 articles and 49 graduated postgraduates. Pictorial of Insect Type Specimens Deposited in Guizhou University is an effective way to reveal the real status of the type specimens preserved permanently, and provides a convenient way for checking and identifying species. It is very valuable for scientific and technical workers who study taxonomy, ecology and biogeography of insects, as well as biological diversity.
