Preliminary survey of the checkered beetles (Coleoptera: Cleridae) of Tamaulipas, Mexico.. The Coleopterists Bulletin 75(2): 661-669.

Abstract

Twenty-three genera and 51 species of Cleridae are reported for the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico, representing 24% of all the species known from the country. It is anticipated that many species remain to be found. For example, Morelos, another Mexican state for which there are comprehensive faunistic data, has 66 clerid species. In Tamaulipas, the most diverse genera are Enoclerus Gahan and Phyllobaenus Dejean with nine species each.
