About this book

Volume 5 in this series covers the Tenebrionoidea.

Structured knowledge of life, as it evolved and is present on our planet, requires cataloguing. Catalogues summarize the work in systematics, they enable assessment of faunal diversity and classification, and provide information on past taxonomic acts. They are also essential in achieving a universal language in taxonomy that assures unambiguous transfer of biological information. Erroneous information due to incorrect use of taxonomic names has an impact in many fields, including genetics, physiology, ecology, plant protection, nature conservation, and legislation.

Over the years, the Palaearctic Coleoptera have undoubtedly been studied by more students that those of other parts of the world, and more than representatives of most other orders of insects. It is therefore remarkable that an overview of the present knowledge of the about 100 000 species of the Palaearctic Coleoptera is badly trailing that of, e.g., the Nearctic Coleoptera, or Palaearctic Diptera.

The aim of Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera is to provide a tool that addresses the most urgent needs: 1) a list of available names, both valid and invalid, of taxa occurring in the Palaearctic Region, in their verified original orthography and with the correct publication dates, 2) a complete list of verified references to primary descriptions, and 3) informative distributions of the species and subspecies. Thus, the catalogue is expected to respond to questions related to biodiversity, and to increase the badly needed nomenclatorial stability.

Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera is a collective work involving many authors and will be published in eight volumes. Each volume will group taxa with respect to the adopted classification, and will be "independent", having its own Reference section and Index.
