About this book

Originally published in 1931, this book examines the Fabrician coleopteran specimens in the Hunterian Collection at Glasgow University. In this first of two volumes, Staig describes examples of the cicindelidae, carabidae, dytiscidae, silphidae, histeridae, erotylidae, scarabaeidae and seven of its subfamilies found in the collection, with drawings of specific beetles in their then-current state of preservation. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in entomology.
