This guide helps you orient yourself among more than 800 representatives from about 160 genera of ground beetles from Africa structured according to tribes from Lorenz, W. (2005). Systematic List of Extant Ground Beetles of the World (Insecta Coleoptera “Geoadephaga”: Trachypachidae and Carabidae incl. Paussinae, Cicindelinae, Rhysodinae) and Robertson & Moore, 2016 – Phylogeny of Paussus L. (Carabidae: Paussinae).
Species are represented in a top view as well as details of mandibles and a side view. For species diversity, the guide is supplemented by other species only with a classic view from above. Illustrations of some of the species depicted here have never been previously published. The contribution will also be a large representation of Tribu Anthiini (Anthia, Atractonotus, Cypholoba, Eccoptoptera, Gonogenia, Netrodera) – 104 representatives and Tribu Paussini (37 representatives).
