Abstract. The phylogeny and evolutionary history of the water scavenger beetles (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae) are inferred from comprehensive analyses of DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial genes COI, COII and 16S and the nuclear genes 18S, 28S and arginine kinase. Bayesian and maximum parsimony analyses included 151 taxa, representing all subfamilies, tribes and subtribes that have ever been proposed in the family, as well as representatives of the hydrophiloid families Helophoridae, Hydrochidae, Spercheidae, Epimetopidae and Georissidae. The resulting well-supported trees strongly disagree with prior classifications of the Hydrophilidae, suggesting that the smaller subfamilies (Horelophinae, Horelophopsinae and Sphaeridiinae) are derived from within the larger Hydrophilinae. The existing tribal classification is more compatible with our results, but many significant differences are evident. Here, we present a new classification of the Hydrophilidae comprising 6 subfamilies and 12 tribes. Each subfamily and tribe is reviewed in detail with (i) a morphological diagnosis, including known or putative morphological synapomorphies, (ii) its taxonomic circumscription, including genera not included in our analyses, and (iii) a review of its general biology and geographic distribution. A new identification key to subfamily and tribe based on adult morphology is also provided.

Hansen, M. 1999. World Catalogue of Insects, Vol. 2: Hydrophiloidea (Coleoptera). Apollo Books, Vester-Skerninge, Denmark. 416 pp.

World Catalogue of Insects is an initiative aimed at compiling worldscale, authoritative catalogues of monophyletic insect taxa.

Volumes will as a minimum contain standard nomenclatoral information on all names pertaining to the taxon treated, including type locality and distribution to the extent this is relevant.

Additional information is optional, e.
