About this book

Language: Spanish

This monograph in the Fauna Ibérica series is dedicated to the beetle family Coccinellidae. This is the first synthesis of existing knowledge of this group of Coleoptera for the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands and includes 121 species, some of which are cited for the first time in the Iberian and European fauna. The monograph develops the taxonomy of the Coccinellid fauna by extraordinary illustrations: 91 original drawings, of which 14 are color plates, which serve as support to the detailed description of each species. Dichotomous keys, based on external characters, along with the illustrations will facilitate the identification of species. Information on the global and Ibero-Balearic geographical distribution and biology of the species are also included. The monograph is completed with an extensive bibliography and nomenclature appendix, which detail, for each taxon, synonyms and combinations of names in chronological order.
