About this book

Coleoptera Lucanidae, commonly called stag-beetles, are part of the select group of the most beautiful insects on our planet. It is a relatively small family, with around 1500 species over the world. The Lucanid fauna of southeast Asia was studied first in India by British entomologists, then in Vietnam by French and in south China by German and French. More recently, in the sixties and seventies, the fauna of Laos and Malay Peninsula was also studied. There was still a big hole in the map: Thailand. For different reasons the insects of Thailand were not available for study till recently.

The objective of Lucanidae of Thailand is not a revision of the Lucanidae of Thailand, just an illustrated book to help amateurs and perhaps professionals to identify their Lucanid specimens. There is still a lot of work to do in systematics of Thailand species, mostly in Neolucanus, Prosopocoilus, Dorcus and principally in Aegus, Nigidius and Figulus. For each species we give the actual scientific name and the different names used in the bibliographic references dealing with specimens from Thailand. We give no complete descriptions but only some specific characters to help in identification. A key, mostly based on the males, is given for each genus or subgenus of more than one species. The general geographical distribution is given and, for Thailand, a more precise distribution is presented by provinces, from North to South.
