About this book

Language: English

The present paper deals with this group of beetles found in Calcutta, So far, 73 species under 45 genera belonging to 19 tribes of two subfamilies have been recorded from Calcutta. An attempt was made by Andrewes (1930) by publising an account of Carabidae under a Catalogue of Indian insects. There he classified the whole family into two subfamilies and subfamilies were divided into many tribes.

This study is mainly based on the colouration of elytra, pronotum, head, antennae, legs and lower surface of the body and also their shapes and sizes to prepare keys to the tribes, genera and species. This study is based on the collections made during the years 1907 to 1926 and deposited in the National Zoological Collection.
