Summary: The first edition of the “Checklist” was published in 1992 and recognized 1923 species of tiger beetles. The species were treated as a family with two subfamilies and several tribes and subtribes. This second edition follows Bouchard et al. 2011 and Duran and Gough 2020 with seven tribes and several subtribes. The tiger beetles are again treated as family, following the results of Lopez-Lopez and Vogler, 2017, and Gough et al., 2020. In these last 25 years 974 new tiger beetle species have been described or re-established, raising the species number of this “Checklist” to 2897. Contents of the book include the geographical range of each species, the complete synonymies, an extensive bibliography, and comprehensive indexes.

This work is an important reference for authors wishing to present the current names of tiger beetles.
