About this book

Language: Spanish

To date nearly 4,000 species of Histeridae have been described. Although these Coleoptera are mainly distributed in the tropical areas, there are records of 165 species living in the Iberian Peninsula. Furthermore, it may be presumed that many species are still unknown. An extensive chapter on the general characteristics of the species is also included. The descriptive chapter contains abundantly illustrated keys for the identification of all the taxa and extensive biological information. Finally, an appendix with the complete nomenclature is provided.

Summary in Spanish:

Se incluye un amplio capítulo sobre las características generales de la familia. La parte descriptiva dispone de claves de determinación de todos los táxones, con abundantes ilustraciones y con datos biológicos (ecología, etología, biogeografía y genética) de interés. Finalmente se incluye un apéndice de la nomenclatura completa.
