Biography

Arnaldo Bordoni was born in Savona in 1938, he studied at the University of Milan and taught in the high schools of Florence for 30 years. Since 1965 he is a cooperator of the Zoological Museum "La Specola" of the University of Florence. He first became interested in Coleoptera Staphylinidae as a result of his many contacts with Tottenham, Jarrige, Fagel and above all with his mentor, Henri Coiffait. He published about 150 articles especially on Omaliinae (Lesteva, Geodromicus, Deliphrosoma), Steninae, Paederinae (Medonini, Lathrobiini, in particular the Italian hypogean Lathrobium), Quediinae; he described the only troglobitic Staphylinid from Italy and wrote the volume on Xantholininae for the Fauna d'Italia, a book on the Coleoptera of the Fucecchio marshes and studies on the Coleoptera of the wetlands in Tuscany. His research has mainly dealt with morphology, systematics and biogeography of Staphylinidae. He described about 20 genera and 180 species.
