This first of three volumes on beetles covers the suborders Arcostemata, Myxophaga, and Adephage; the series Staphyliniformia, Scarabaeiformia, and Elateriformia (excluding Elateroidea) of Polyphaga; and some introductory chapters on the early evolution of beetles, morphology, and recent advances in molecular systematics. The entries, several pages long in most cases, provides information on distribution; biology and ecology; the morphology of adults, larvae, pupa, and eggs; and phylogeny and taxonomy. The second edition is significantly expanded to accommodate the many new taxa of beetle identified throughout the world during the decade since the first volume.
