Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera contains the table of contents, introduction, taxonomic information, distributional information, biographical information, acknowledgements, and mailing and e-mail addresses of the authors. The book provides a tool that meets the most urgent needs: a list of available names, both valid and invalid, of taxa occurring in the Palaearctic Region, in their verified orthography and with correct publication dates, a complete list of verified references to primary descriptions, and informative distributions of the species and subspecies. Thus, the book addresses the questions related to biodiversity and to the stability of the taxonomic nomencIature. The book treats the polyphagous superfamilies Elateroidea, Derodontoidea, Bostrichoidea, Lymexyloidea, Cleroidea, and Cucujoidea. The adopted arrangement of families and subfamilies within the superfamilies is consistent with J. F. Lawrence & A. F. Newton's 1995 classification.

Keywords: Bostrichoidea; Cleroidea; Cucujoidea; Derodontoidea; Elateroidea; Lymexyloidea; Palaearctic Coleoptera; taxonomic nomencIature
