List of Coleoptera Collected in Latimer County, Oklahoma by Karl Stephan (2002)
[cite:899478

List of more than 3,500 beetle species collected in Latimer Co., OK (76 pg. PDF)

Ed Riley compiled the original version of this list during the years 2000-2002 as Karl Heinz Stephan (1931-2005) donated sections of his beetle collection to the TAMUIC in College Station, Texas.

In 2014, Mike Quinn began updating the taxa into the list's present form. Most of his changes are denoted within brackets in the notes column. The majority of the list has been proofread, but numerous spelling and taxonomic errors no doubt remain, particularly in the latter section of the list.
