World Catalogue of Insects; Volume 13


The World Catalogue of Insects has become known as one of the preeminent sources of information about taxonomic classification of insects. Volume 13 focuses on the family dermestidae. All 62 currently described genera and 1498 species are included. Following a short introduction and remarks on the arrangement of entries, the book begins with a world atlas for the catalogue and information about the systematic position of dermestidae and the subfamily, tribal and generic divisions. The bulk of the book is taken up by entries of each species, its distribution, and possible synonyms. Also included are short lists of probable new undescribed species and traces of beetle species that have been found on dinosaur bones. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
