Michael L. Ferro and Andrew J. Flick. 2015. “Collection Bias” and the Importance of Natural History Collections in Species Habitat Modeling: A Case Study Using Thoracophorus costalis Erichson [sic] (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Osoriinae), with a Critique of GBIF.org. The Coleopterists Bulletin 69(3): 415-425.

Abstract
When attempting to understand a species' distribution, knowing how many collections should be surveyed to achieve an adequate sample (exhaustiveness) is important. A test for exhaustiveness using species distribution models created with Diva-GIS was performed on county level locality information recorded from more than 4,900 specimens of Thoracophorus costalis Erichson (Staphylinidae: Osoriinae) borrowed from 38 collections. Size and location of distribution models based on specimens from single collections varied greatly, indicating “collection bias.” At least 15 collections needed to be combined before the resultant model averaged 90% of the area of a reference model created from all available specimens. By themselves, alternative distribution data from literature, Bugguide.net, and GBIF.org performed poorly, resulting in models with less than 15% the area of the reference model. Comments on the use of online data, the importance of maintaining and growing regional collections, and the future of natural history collections are included. (Emphasis added)

The eyeless Catopocerus beetles (Leiodidae) of eastern North America
By S.B. Peck
Psyche , 1974
This is the only taxonomic treatment of Catopocerus beetles. Three are described as new, and a key to the five species known at the time is provided.
Note that Catopocerus ulkei Brown is now a synonym of Catopocerus politus Motschulksy.

As of July 2020, a simple internet search for the title of the paper brings up a PDF.
