For each species, besides the valid name, all synonyms are listed in chronological order, with original combinations and spellings, as well as the type-localities (also in the form given in the original publication), acronyms of the collections where the type specimens are preserved. The author (and the respective publication) of each synonymization, and - if done - each lectotype designation, is also quoted. The geographical distribution closes each species entry.
For every genus-level taxon valid name, list of synonyms (with the author and publication data of the synonymization) and type-species (with the author, publication data, and way of fixation) are specified. Subfamilies and tribes are listed according to systematic affinities, genera and species in alphabetical order.
All the available (i.e. except those marked as "not seen", quoted according to secondary sources) taxonomic and faunistic publications on the Bostrichidae, from 1758 to the end of October 2007, have been consulted, with careful checking of their content and dating.
