About this book

Language: Spanish

This monograph of the series Fauna Ibérica is devoted to one family of Coleoptera (Latridiidae) and is the first synthesis of the group from the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. The general chapters provide a comprehensive synthesis of the main advances on the taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, ecology and biology of Latridiidae beetles. The second part is more specialised and presents a catalogue of approximately 90 Iberian-Balearic species.

The reader will be able to identify the adult specimens of all the species through dichotomous keys that refer mainly to external morphological characters that can be identified by direct observation. Identification keys for subfamilies, genera and species are included. The descriptions of each species contain illustrations and information on their geographical distribution and biology.

The book is richly illustrated with 109 original plates and completed with an updated and comprehensive bibliography, as well as an annex to scientific nomenclature.

Summary in Spanish:
Esta monografía de la serie Fauna Ibérica está dedicada a una familia de Coleópteros (Latridiidae) y representa la primera síntesis de la misma para la península ibérica e islas Baleares. En los capítulos generales se ofrece una síntesis del incesante avance que ha experimentado el conocimiento taxonómico, filogenético, biogeográfico, ecológico y biológico de estos Coleópteros. A continuación se presenta el catálogo de las aproximadamente 90 especies íbero-baleares.

El lector podrá identificar los adultos de todas las especies mediante claves dicotómicas referidas, en la mayoría de los casos, a caracteres externos de observación directa. Se incluyen todas las claves para la identificación de subfamilias, géneros y especies. La descripción de cada especie se acompaña de las correspondientes ilustraciones e información de su distribución geográfica y biología.

El libro está ilustrado con 109 láminas originales y se completa con una extensa y actualizada bibliografía, así como con un apéndice de nomenclatura científica.
