A catalog and bibliography of the Buprestoidea of America north of Mexico.
By Nelson et al.
The Coleopterists Society, Special Publication No. 4. 274 pp., 2008
Cite: 208645
Abstract: In the first catalog since that privately published by Chamberlin (1926), this new volume is an annotated summary catalog listing all valid and invalid taxa of the families Schizopodidae and Buprestidae; with data for 787 species and 36 subspecies in 55 genera.

Under each taxon are given summaries and references for taxonomy, ecology, distribution (to state and province) and all recorded larval and adult host plant associations.

The volume concludes with a large bibliography of references for these two families and a full index to the catalog. The catalog is 274 pages in total and follows the modern classification summarized in Bellamy (2003).

Hmmm
Wondering why this book entry is placed under the Modest Sphinx moth(1) instead of Buprestoidea(2)?

"Catalog..." vs "A catalog..." at the bottom
the latter seems to be the correct title
