Andrzej S. Jadwiszczak, Piotr Węgrzynowicz, 2003. World Catalogue of Coccinellidae. Part I - Epilachninae.
Olsztyn, 264 pages, hard binding, format: 17 x 24 cm,
The last comprehensive world-catalogue of the Coccinellidae was published by Korschefsky -
as the respective part of the Coleopterorum Catalogus - 72 years ago. Intensive systematic and faunistic
studies on this popular group of beetles, pursued by three generations of entomologists, have extended our
knowledge so much, that a new, updated catalogue summarizing the data accumulated since the time of Linnaeus
became urgently needed. The present publication - including the subfamily Epilachninae: altogether
1051 species in 22 genera - is the first of planned four parts.
