From introduction:
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.
