A distributional checklist of the beetles (Coleoptera) of Florida.By Peck & Thomas.
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Gainesville. 180 pp., 1998
- Family Index
This checklist was derived from the electronic manuscript which was conventionally published in April 1998 as Volume 16 of the series Arthropods of Florida and Neighboring Land Areas. The introductory and bibliographic material and appendix and index were stripped, and the remainder, consisting of the checklist itself, was converted to HTML format. The species list presented here is as published. Changes will be in red, so that they can be distinguished from original manuscript information. As noted in the published version, the authors solicit the coleopterological community for corrections, additions, deletions, and new information. We want this checklist to be a dynamic resource for all those interested in beetles in general and the rich and unique fauna of Florida in particular.
