This book catalogues distribution data on occurrence of families of Tenebrionoidea. Having reviewed available distribution data, the authors consider 170 species to be present in Poland: Mycetophagidae (14), Ciidae (43), Mordellidae (52), Zopheridae (15), Meloidae (I2), Pyrochroidae (3), Salpingidae (13), Anthicidae (18). Conalia baudii Mulsant et Rey, 1858 (Mordellidae) was recorded from Poland for the first time. 48 species were considered doubtful due to misidentifications or a long-term lack of new occurrences. Data on distribution of the confirmed taxa cover source references, localities, UTM 10 × 10 km grid coordinates, dates and collections that hold specimen, accompanied by distribution maps generalized to the UTM grid. A separate chapter gives an overview of Palaearctic distribution of all the discussed taxa, including subspecies when applicable. Detailed taxonomic checklist of the covered groups including synonymy is also provided. The distribution catalogue part is followed by the meta-analysis built upon a database covering all the presented information. A number of analytical and generalization techniques was used, giving synthetic views on research intensity and some other parameters at the species and family level. The publication follows the former volume of the Coleoptera Poloniae series, extending traditional faunistics by links to the database which is available online through the Biodiversity Map and Coleoptera Poloniae websites, served by the Polish Biodiversity Information Network (KSIB).
