Abstract

Bibliographic references to works pertaining to the taxonomy of Coleoptera published between 1758 and 1900 in the non-periodical literature are listed. Each reference includes the full name of the author, the year or range of years of the publication, the title in full, the publisher and place of publication, the pagination with the number of plates, and the size of the work. This information is followed by the date of publication found in the work itself, the dates found from external sources, and the libraries consulted for the work. Overall, more than 990 works published by 622 primary authors are listed. For each of these authors, a biographic notice (if information was available) is given along with the references consulted.

Keywords

Coleoptera , beetles, literature, dates of publication, biographies

Introduction

One of the fundamental principles of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (hereafter called “Code”) is the Principle of Priority (Article 23.1). The valid name of a taxon is the oldest available name applied to it, unless that name has been invalidated or another name is given precedence by a provision of the Code or by a ruling of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (herein “the Commission”). Although considered of trivial importance by some zoologists, dates of publication of works that contain new scientific names are important in establishing priority.

The scope of this work focuses mainly on determining dates of publication, as precisely as possible, of works, such as books, pamphlets, dissertations, catalogues, dictionaries and school programs, relating to the taxonomy and nomenclature of Coleoptera from 1 January 1758, the starting date of zoological nomenclature (ICZN 1999: Article 3), to the end of 1900. Works published in periodical literature, such as journals and proceedings of meetings, are not listed nor are reprints of articles unless the reprint version appeared first or is the version most often cited in the literature. Works issued in journals with separate pagination or as supplements are included in this bibliography because they are usually bound separately from the journal issues. Particular attention has been given to works containing new taxa (at the family, generic and species levels, including fossils), new synonymies and type species designations for genus-group taxa. Besides the dates of publication, this bibliography provides exact titles, publisher’s names if listed, places of publication, paginations (including number of plates) and sizes for all works included. Brief biographic notes of the authors are included if information was available.

Format

The format used in this book is essentially similar to that used by Evenhuis (1997a, b). For each publication listed, the following information is provided.

Author Name. The name of the author of the publication, or section of the work, is given in full. Variations in orthography are listed in square brackets. If more than one author is responsible for the publication, their names are listed in square brackets before the title of the work.

Biographical Note. This section includes biographical notes about the author. First, the places and dates of birth and death are given in parentheses if available1. Then a brief biographical sketch follows, usually including the current location of the author’s collection if known2. The section concludes with a limited selection of references pertaining to the biography of the author.

Literature Citation. The following information is provided for every work cited.

Year(s). The actual year of publication or range of years if the work was issued in parts is listed. If the year is uncertain, it is given in brackets.

Title. The full title of the work is listed taken from the title page. Alternative titles from additional title pages are indicated in the remarks section.

Imprint. The publisher(s)3 and place(s) of publication of the work are listed in the original orthography.

Pagination and plates. Complete pagination of the work or section of a work is given. Unnumbered pages are counted and the number given in square brackets. The number of plates included in the book or associated with it is provided.

Size. The signature size of the work is listed in parentheses using the standard denotations folio, 4to (quarto), 8vo (octavo), 12mo (duodecimo), etc. This information was gathered mainly from Hagen (1862, 1863), Derksen and Scheiding (1963) and Derksen and Scheiding-Göllner (1965, 1968, 1972).

Date of publication [DP]. This section, usually given after the signature size or for works issued in parts in the remarks section, lists dates of publication found during this study. The first one is the date (usually indicated only by the year) on the title page4. It is followed in parentheses by the date listed in the preliminaries, such as the preface or the dedication, or on the last printed text-page (colophon) if it exists, which is cited here simply to denote that a particular work could not have been published before that date. This is followed chronologically by the dates found in accounts of society meetings, in journals or in other works. If the date on the title page is the earliest known date, then this date is to be adopted as the date of publication of the work unless there is evidence that the work, or part of the work, was indeed published later. If the earliest date known is the year only, then it is assumed that the work was published on the last day of that year, as stated in article 21.3.2 of the Code (ICZN 1999).

The date of publication is defined in the Code (ICZN 1999: 102) as “the date on which copies of the work become available by purchase or free distribution.” Unless listed on the work itself, most dates found in this study are not the actual dates of publication but dates on which works are demonstrated to be in existence as published works. Since most dates found are from published lists of works received by societies or institutions, from contemporary reviews in journals, or from national registers of publications, such as the Bibliographie de la France or the Allgemeine Bibliographie für Deutschland, there is sometimes a significant gap between the actual date of publication and that reported. This is particularly true for journals publishing reviews of works. Nevertheless, the earliest dates reported in this study, if earlier than on the title pages, should be considered as dates of publication until better dating can be found.

Source. The libraries consulted for each particular work treated in this publication are listed in abbreviated form (see “source” section below).

Remarks. This section provides information relevant to the work such as alternate title pages, subsequent editions, translations, Commission actions, etc. Books issued in parts are often detailed, with the date of publication of each part, in this section. Subsequent editions that contained new or significant taxonomic information may be cited separately.

The search for publication dates through these journals was done mainly using Google Books. This process has its limitations. For example, some pages are poorly scanned and unreadable, others are simply missing, and sometimes whole issues of the journal are missing. Nevertheless, this digital database has many rare or difficult-to-find journals useful for dating books.

Section XV of the second volume (pp. 245–256 + 3 pls), entitled “Of the insects and testaceous animals of Lapland,” includes a list of insects collected; some species of Coleoptera are briefly described and illustrated but none of them are new to science.

A German translation was published in Berlin, 1803, under the title “Reise durch Schweden und Finnland, bis an die äussersten Gränzen von Lappland, in den Jahren 1798 und 1799. Von Joseph Acerbi. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von Ch. Weyland” [GB]. A French translation was issued in three volumes (8vo) in Paris, 1803–1804, under the title “Voyage au Cap-Nord, par la Suede, la Finlande et la Laponie, par Joseph Acerbi.

The entire series consists of four volumes, 1893–1900, treating the vertebrates and the Insecta. Despite the title, it is evident from the avant-propos that Acloque did not mean to designate type species for the genus-group taxa treated in the sense of the Code.

The following genus-group names are made available in this work: Eudromius (p. 49), Eubrachinus (p. 50), Euditomus (p. 53), Pseudelaphrus (p. 81), Euphilhydrus (p. 94), Euberosus (p. 94), and Pseudhydraena (p. 96). The new family-group names Ilybii (p. 83) and Pholidini (p. 145) are also made available for the first time.

The entire work was published in two volumes, issued simultaneously. Two new species of beetles are described in the second volume, Bolboceras koreensis (p. 462) and Platyrhynchus waltonianus (p. 468).

As noted by Petit (2007: 91–92) there was a lengthly review of this book in The Athenaeum for 25 December 1847 by W.H. Dixon. Several quotations from the work are included but the title given differs slightly from that published and the publisher is listed as “Reeve & Co.” a firm that ceased to exist in November 1847. Clearly Dixon was furnished with a review copy.

This volume is the 12th and last fascicle of Agassiz’s Nomenclator zoologicus. Another edition, 12mo, was published in 1848 and contains 1135 pages. According to Evenhuis (1997a: 52), there are no apparent differences between the two editions other than page size and pagination. The work includes numerous unjustified emendations of generic names.

This work was intended to supplement Panzer’s Faunae Insectorum Germanicae initia. Ahrens published the first fascicle, Germar and Kaulfuss the third one, 1816 [q.v.], and Germar the second (1814) and last 21 (1822–1847) [q.v.]. Rautenberg (1957: 615–625) gave a list of all species illustrated on the plates for the 24 fascicles.

The Histoire naturelle des Coléoptères was published in three parts, forming two volumes, 1887–1902. The second volume was authored by Kunckel d’Herculais, 1887–1891 [q.v.]. According to Friedländer (1902: 209), the first volume was published only in 1902 despite the date on the title page; this seems to be confirmed by the entries in the two recording journals cited above.

The entire Histoire physique, naturelle et politique de Madagascar was issued in 57 fascicles, forming 39 volumes, 1875–1954, first under the direction of Alfred Grandidier, 1875–1913, then Alfred and Guillaume Grandidier, 1914–1932, and finally Guillaume Grandidier, 1942–1954. Alluaud’s contribution is the 52nd fascicle of the series.

This work contains a list of beetles, with localities, known from Madagascar and nearby islands. One new replacement name, Eutelonotus (p. 456) to be attributed to Fairmaire, is proposed for Eutelus Solier, a junior homonym of Eutelus Walker.

The publisher and place of publication are not indicated. Although published anonymously, the work is credited to Asso y del Río (e.g., Dryander 1798: 240; Agassiz 1848: 148). It contains an annotated list of the animals of Aragon in northeast Spain. The Coleoptera are on pages 96–109; the known species are named but those not recognized by the author are described but not named.

This work was published in ten livraisons, corresponding to livraisons 47–56 of the entire series started by Dejean and Boisduval, 1829–1836 [q.v.]. The first livraison was noticed in the Annales de la Société Entomologique de France (p. ciii) as published between 1 October 1836 and 31 December 1836 and recorded by the Bibliographie de la France on 25 February 1837 (three feuilles and five plates). I have not been able to find any dates of publication regarding the other livraisons. The title page is dated 1836, the preface 12 November 1836. Guignot (1932: 548) researched the dates of publication and indicated that pages 1–64 were distributed in November or early December 1836, pages 65–224 between April and December 1837, and pages 225–415 in 1838. At the request of Frank Balfour-Browne, F.J. Griffin, then registrar of the Royal Entomological Society of London, found that pages 1–48 of this work were issued between 1 October and 1 December 1836 (Balfour-Browne 1936: 105). This corroborates the Bibliographie de la France entry which noticed three feuilles of text (48 pp.). At this time, the dates of publication that should be retained are: (pp. 1–48) 1 December 1836; (pp. 49–224) 31 December 1837; (pp. 225–415) 31 December 1838.

This section constitutes livraisons 1 and 2 (but registered as livraison 1) of the Faune Française which was issued in 29 livraisons, 1821–1830. There is no date on the cover of the copy I have seen but Bedel (1877: lxxxvi), who commented on all new species described in these two livraisons, mentioned that it was published in 1821. This is corroborated by the entry in the Bibliographie de la France. A new edition of these two livraisons was issued in 1829 [q.v.] along with livraison 24.

The Faune Française was published with the plates available colored or uncolored; a few copies were available in 4to.

This is the third (also called the Disciples’) edition of Cuvier’s Le Règne animal. It was published in 262 livraisons, each containing a mixture of text and plates for each class. Completed sets of livraisons were subsequently bound into 20 volumes divided into sections. The insect section comprised two volumes, each with two parts (text and atlas [vide infra]).

The Coleoptera are on pages 81–538 of the first volume, issued in the following livraisons: 112: (pp. 81–88) January 1841; 123: (pp. 89–96) July 1841; 126: (pp. 97–104) August 1841; 132: (pp. 105–112) November 1841; 138: (pp. 113–120) February 1842; 155: (pp. 121–128) October 184211; 159: (pp. 129–136) December 1842; 162: (pp. 137–144 [pages 145–146 were not printed]) January 1843, 9 February 1843 (Sherborn 1922b: 555); 171: (pp. 147–154) 11 May 1843 (Sherborn 1922b: 555), May 1843; 175: (pp. 155–162) July 1843; 181: (pp. 163–202) 10 August 1843 (Sherborn 1922b: 555), September 1843; 183: (203–242) October 1843; 186: (pp. 243–282) November 1843; 189: (pp. 283–322) January 1844; 193: (pp. 323–362) March 1844; 198: (pp. 363–402) May 1844; 201: (pp. 403–442) 26 July 1844 (Sherborn 1922b: 555), July 1844; 205: (pp. 443–450) September 1844; 207: (pp. 451–490) November 1844; 209: (pp. 491–530) December 1844; 210: (pp. 531–555) 17 January 1845 (Sherborn 1922b: 555), January 1845.

The names of the insects depicted on the plates are considered type-species designations as indicated in the title of the work. Plates 16–17 are signed “L.D. [= L. Doyère] et V. [= probably Valenciennes]” and plates 18–75 “Em. Bl.” or “Emile Bl. [= Emile Blanchard]” to whom type-species designations should be attributed. Plate 15 shows beetle larvae (and a pupa) of various families. The species depicted on plates 16–75 are listed in Appendix 1.

A note below Bates’ name on page 423 reads “The Curculionidae have been named and described by Mr. H.W.

The entire expedition report was published in seven volumes of text and two volumes of plates17, 1835–1849, issued in 90 livraisons (Dickinson et al. 2011: 88). A facsimile edition was published by Junk, in Lochem, 1972. Graesse (1863: 35) mentioned that a new edition was published in 1852, Paris. However, although labelled “nouvelle édition,” it is for the most part supplementary information published in 1852 and 1853 under the title “Voyage dans les deux Amériques, augmenté de renseignements exacts jusqu’en 1853 sur les différents états du Nouveau Monde.” A Spanish version in four volumes was published in 1945, in Buenos Aires, without the zoology section, under the title “Viaje a la América meridional – Brasil – República del Uruguay – República Argentina – La Patagonia – República de Chile – República de Bolivia – República del Perú – realizado de 1826 a 1833 por Alcides d’Orbigny.

Dumont-d’Urville, Capitaine de vaisseau; publié par ordre du gouvernement, sous la direction supérieure de M. Jacquinot, Capitaine de vaisseau, commandant de la Zélée. Zoologie Atlas. Paris. 140 plates. (Folio) McG

The Zoologie Atlas contains 140 colored plates, published in 28 livraisons between 25 March 1842 and 24 February 1854. The Coleoptera are depicted on 19 plates (numbered 1–19) representing 325 species of which 241 were considered to be new and indicated by Nob[is]. Furthermore a number of new genera were made available from the plates. The dates of publication of these 19 plates, as discussed by Emberson (1992) (see also Clark and Crosnier 2000) unless otherwise noted, are: Plate 1 [livr. 3]: 1 December 1842; Plate 2 [livr. 4]: 2 February 1843; Plate 3 [livr. 5]: 4 May 1843; Plate 4 [livr. 7]: 26 August 1843; Plate 5 [livr. 11]: 19 July 1844; Plates 6–7 [livr. 12]: 20 December 1844 (Soc Géog Fr), 10 January 1845; Plate 8 [livr. 21]: 5 November 1846; Plate 9 [livr. 17]: 6 July 1846; Plate 10 [livr. 21]: 5 November 1846; Plate 11 [livr. 22]: 6 April 1847; Plate 12 [livr. 21]: 5 November 1846; Plate 13 [livr. 20]: 6 July 1846; Plate 14 [livr. 22]: 6 April 1847; Plate 15 [livr. 21]: 5 November 1846; Plates 16–17 [livr. 18]: 6 July 1846; Plate 18 [livr. 17]: 6 July 1846; Plate 19 [livr. 20]: 6 July 1846. A list of the Coleoptera depicted on the plates is given in Appendix 2. The text was published in 1853 [q.v.].

The entire expedition report was divided into seven parts: Histoire du voyage; Anthropologie; Botanique; Géologie, Minérologie et géographie physique; Hydrographie; Physique; and Zoologie. Most of the zoological material of this expedition was collected around the Straits of Magellan, on various southern Pacific Islands, including New Zealand, in Tasmania, along the north coast of Australia and in the Indo-Malaysian archipelago from New Guinea to Singapore (Emberson 1992: 251).

The entire report of Jacquemont’s expedition was published in four volumes of text and two volumes of plates issued in 80 livraisons, 1835–1844. The date of 1844 listed on the title page of volume 4 probably refers to the completion of the volume. Collation and dates of publication of each livraison are desired. Overall, the atlases contain 290 plates and four maps. Three of these plates refer to entomology and all of them pertain to Lepidoptera only.

The Coleoptera are on pages 25–28 of the crustacea and insects section and the new species described are Mylabris jacquemontii (p. 26), Diacanthus fuscipennis (p. 27), and Bruchus biguttatus (p. 27).

The entire Historia fisica y politica de Chile of Claude Gay [1800–1873] consists of 28 text-volumes and two atlas-volumes, 1844–1871. The Zoologia section forms eight volumes published between 1847 and 1854 based on the title-page dates. The text and plates were issued in 87 parts (Evenhuis 2015c: 40). Collation and dates of publication for the parts are desired.

The Coleoptera are in volumes 4 and 5. There are 32 plates depicting beetles, with scientific names listed at the bottom. These are included in the second volume of “Atlas de la historia fisica y politica de Chile” dated 1854 on the title page [GB]. Stuardo Ortiz (1954) provided a list of all botanical and zoological taxa illustrated on the plates.

The remaining pages of volume 5 related to Coleoptera were authored by Solier, 1851 [q.v.].

The second page is entitled “Zoologie. Description des insectes par Émile Blanchard.” The Coleoptera are on pages 1–347.

The entire expedition report was published in 22 volumes and several atlases totaling about 500 plates. The zoology section appeared in three volumes (vol. III: 1853; vol. IV: 1853; vol. V: 1854) and one atlas of 140 colored plates (Clark and Crosnier 2000). Most of the plates were published before the text (see Blanchard, 1842–1854) and the new taxa depicted on them date from the plates.

The Coleoptera section was published in two parts, corresponding to Häfte 4 and 6 of the whole work (see Linnström 1883: 385): (pp. 1–112) 1858; (pp. 113–218) 1859, August 1859 (Swensk Bibl). Persson (1971) presented information regarding the voyage and the insect collection. The book was reissued in 1910 by Alqvist & Wiksells in Uppsala & Stockholm, with Latin text [McG].

This voyage was the first Swedish circumnavigation expedition, undertaken during the years 1851–1853 under the command of Chistian Adolf Virgin [1797–1870]. The crew visited South America, Panama, Galapagos Islands, California, Hawaii, Tahiti, Australia, Hong Kong, Canton, the Philippines, Mauritius and the Cape. The entire expedition report was published in three sections, botany, zoology, and physics, in five volumes, 1857–1910. The first official account of the expedition was published in 1851–1854 by C.J.A. Skogman as “Fregatten Eugenies Resa omkring jorden.”

The expedition report was divided into five sections: Histoire du voyage; Botanique; Observations nautiques et de physique; Philologie; and Zoologie. The Faune entomologique de l’Océan Pacifique, part of the Zoologie section, was issued into two volumes, both written by Boisduval. The first one, dealing with Lepidoptera, was published in 1832; the second one, dealt with here, comprises livraisons 36–38 of the zoology portion (Evenhuis 1997a: 104). Twelve plates were issued for the entomology part, including four on Coleoptera (pls 6–9). I found no dates of publication for the plates except that Crotch (1874: 32) reported that the first livraison of plates was issued in 1832. Since only French vernacular names are provided for the species illustrated on the plates, they are not nomenclaturally significant.

This work was also published the same year under the title “Faune entomologique de l’Océanie comprenant les coléoptères, les hémiptères, les orthoptères, les névroptères, les hyménoptères et les diptères” by Roret, Paris [CNC, BHL].

The preface along with the list of works (pp. 1–17) and generalities (i–107) are attributed to both authors. As indicated in the preface (p. 9), Lacordaire is the sole author of the text relating to the orders, including the Coleoptera (pp. 133–677), treated in this volume. According to the publisher, the entire work was to consist of three volumes but only the first one was issued.

This work consists of two volumes, the first one issued 1827–1829 (Hagen 1862: 82) and the second one 1830–1833. The second volume was issued in eight parts recorded as follows: 1–2: (pp. 1–52 + 10 pls) 2 October 1830 (Bibl Deutsch); 3–4: (pp. 53–124 + 10 pls) 24 September 1831 (Pharm Centr), 8 October 1831 (Bibl Deutsch), July–December 1831 (Verz Derj Bücher); 5: (pp. 125–196 + 5 pls) 11 August 1832 (Bibl Deutsch); 6–8: (pp. iv + 197–364 + 14 pls) 10 December 1833 (Bibl Deutsch), January–June 1834 (Verz Bücher Landkarten). The title page is dated 1833, the Vorrede August 1833. Sherborn (1922a: xxix) gave the following publication dates: 1–3: 1831; 4–6: 1832; 7–8: 1833. The Coleoptera are treated in the second volume (pp. 100–142). At least two new species are described, Meloe reticulatus (p. 108) and Lytta violacea (p. 123). Sherborn (1932a: 6915) dated the second species from 1832; the first one was omitted. Based on this study, both species should be dated 1831.

The text of this publication was also issued, almost integrally, in Revue Zoologique 1842: 81–83 [March], 106–114 [April] under the titles “Note monographique sur le genre Misolampus” (pp. 81–83) and “Monographie des Sphœrotus et de quelques autres genres appartenant au premier groupe de la tribu des blapsides (famille des Coléoptères hétéromères)” (pp. 106–114). I have noticed the following two changes in the spelling of the scientific names between the two publications: Misolampus gondotii (p. 11) is spelled Misolampus goudotii (p. 82) in the journal and Sphoerotus loevigatus (p. 15) is spelled Sphoerotus levigatus (p. 108).

Several new fossil species of beetles, including Carabus elongatus, Coccinella wittsii and Elater vetustus, are named and made available by illustrations.

A section entitled “Introductory observations by Mr. Westwood” (pp. xi–xviii) suggests that J.O. Westwood should be regarded as the author of the new species illustrated on plates 2–6. Evenhuis (1997a: 128) believed so while Sherborn, in his Index Animalium, credited the new species to Brodie.

The text for this section of the work was published in eight livraisons: 1–2: (pp. 1–96) April–June 1832 (Soc Ent Fr [Annales, p. 243]), 5 September 1832 (Soc Ent Fr), 24 September 1832 (Acad Sci Fr); 3–4: (pp. 97–192) July–September 1832 (Soc Ent Fr [Annales, p. 334]); 5–6: (pp. 193–288) 9 January 1833 (Soc Ent Fr); 7: (pp. 289–336) 20 March 1833 (Soc Ent Fr); 8: (pp. 337–400 + [2]) 3 April 1833 (Soc Ent Fr). The whole volume was received on 18 March 1833 by the Académie des Sciences. The Coleoptera are on pages 114–274 (livraisons 3–6) and plates 33–44. Dates of publication of some of the plates are known (see Evenhuis 1997a: 137) and are indicated in Appendix 11 along with the list of species illustrated. Brullé is the author of the entire book except for pages 30–63 which deal with crustacés.

The publication dates provided by Evenhuis (1997a: 136) for the fifth and sixth livraisons could not be confirmed. No entries were found in the Bibliographie de la France for the year 1832 regarding livraisons of text; all those recorded concerned livraisons of plates.

The scientific expedition to Morea was linked to the French military mission to the Peloponnese from January 1829 to July 1833. Members of the mission reached Greece by March 1829 but by early 1830 most of them, exhausted by diseases and deprivation, had returned to France. Nevertheless, a large quantity of botanical and zoological specimens had been collected during these few months.

The two livraisons for volume 5 have been recorded by the Bibliographie de la France only in 1837 suggesting that the dates on the title pages (e.g., 1835) could be incorrect. However the entire volume was noted by Burmeister (1836: 294) in his review of the entomological literature for 1835.

According to the prospectus (Feuilleton du Journal de la Librairie of 9 August 1834), the entire series was to comprise 12 volumes and 240 plates (either colored or uncolored) issued in 24 livraisons of text and 30 cahiers of plates. Only volumes 4–6 on Coleoptera and 9 dealing with Orthoptera and Hemiptera were published and all four were authored by Brullé alone.

This thesis consists of a list of the carabid species of Pavia, Italy, with habitat data. One new species, listed under the name “Demetrias ruficeps. Gené MS” (p. 9), is described; the taxon should be attributed to Carlo Giuseppe Gené [1800–1847].

Agassiz (1848: 400) listed a work entitled “Enumeratio Caraborum Ticinensium” published in 1830 by someone named “Brambilla.” There is no such work and the reference certainly pertains to Cadolini’s thesis. Hagen (1863: 303) listed this thesis under Cadolini and Giovanni Maria Zendrini [1783–1857].

Chaudoir, Maximilien de (Baron) (Ivnitza, Ukraine: 12 September 1816 – 6 May 1881: Amélie-les-Bains-Palalda, Pyrénées-Orientales, France). Russian entomologist of independent means, who specialized early in life in the study of Carabidae; at 15, left for Dorpat (Tartu) to study law but never obtained his degree; made the sole extensive collecting trip of his life, a 40 day-journey to the Caucasus in company of M.H. Hochhuth in 1845; settled in his native town, Ivnitza, in Ukraine but moved in 1864 to Paris and then to Amélie-les-Bains-Palalda, France; made several trips to various cities in Europe to study type specimens in museums and private collections; his collection, certainly one of the best of his time (if not the best) on the family Carabidae, passed in the hands of René Oberthür after Chaudoir’s death and eventually ended up at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.

Hagen (1862: 153) and other bibliographers mentioned that this work contains 12 plates and eight pages. However, the copy on GDZ has 12 written pages, one for each plate, where the species illustrated are named and described. According to Krauss (1920: 33), the plates were issued in three parts as follows: 1: (pls 1–4) 1787; 2: (pls 5–8) 1791; 3: (pls 9–12) 1792. The title page is dated 1787.

Only one new species of beetle, Mylabris 12-punctata, is described and illustrated on plate 5. All new species in this work have been dated 1787 in Sherborn’s Index Animalium.

The text pertaining to the new species described in this work was extracted by Meyer (1794: 270–282).

These volumes were published anonymously and although some authors attributed the work to Johann Ulrich Schellenberg [q.v.], Clairville, as indicated on the title page of his 1811 work “Manuel d’herborisation en Suisse et en Valais...,” is the author. Méquignon (1940) pointed out that Clairville wrote the text and Johann Ulrich Schellenberg did the illustrations. This was confirmed by Kerzhner (1991: 118). The text is both in French (verso pages) and German (recto pages). Engelmann’s (1846: 477) entry suggests that separate French and German versions were also issued but this could not be corroborated. Latreille (1799, 1810) wrote a short review of the first volume and an extended one of the second volume.

This work consists of 91 plates, each corresponding to a livraison, with about 5000 illustrations depicting various genera and subgenera of animals. According to the prospectus, each plate depicts the type of a genus or subgenus in 77 orders of animals. The Coleoptera are on plates 74, 75, 78, 80, 82–88. Plate 83 was recorded on March 1840 in Revue Zoologique and plates 82–85 on 10 July 1841 in the Bibliographie de la France. All the species names of beetles are in vernacular form. Each plate is entitled “Règne animal de Mr le Baron Cuvier, disposé en tableaux méthodiques.

The title cited by Engelmann (1846: 319) and Evenhuis (1997a: 152) is “Règne animal de Cuvier, disposé en tableaux méthodiques, ouvrage adopté par le conseil royal de l’instruction publique, pour l’enseignement de l’histoire naturelle dans les établissements de l’université.

The entire work consists of two volumes issued simultaneously in four parts; it was published anonymously. The section on pages 157–191 is credited to Contarini because his name is listed after the description of the new species on pages 189–191. Three new species of beetles are described: Lixus roseus (p. 189), Chrysomela santonici (p. 189), and Coccinella villosa (p. 190).

The entire Fauna del Regno di Napoli was issued in sets of pages, 1829–1886 (Ruggiero 2002: 67), by Oronzio Gabriele Costa and his son Achille Costa. The entomology section was divided into six parts, each corresponding to an insect order. The parts dealing with Lepidoptera was written by O.G. Costa, those dealing with Coleoptera, Neuroptera and Hymenoptera by A. Costa, and those dealing with Orthoptera and Hemiptera by both O.G. and A. Costa (D’Erasmo 1949).

The entire work consists of seven volumes, 1752–1778. The Coleoptera are in volumes 4 and 5. Volume 7 contains a section entitled “Dixième mémoire. Supplément aux mémoires des volumes précédens, ou description de quelques insectes ailés, suivie de celle de plusieurs insectes du Cap-de-Bonne Espérance” (pp. 591–666) where several new species of Coleoptera are described (pp. 622–666).

A German translation of DeGeer’s work was issued by J.A.E. Goeze, 1777–1783 [q.v.].

Welter-Schultes and Wieland (2012) pointed out, in their application to the Commission, that DeGeer did not consistently follow strict binominal rules in this work when describing new species. Because many of the specific names proposed by DeGeer are used today, they proposed that the Commission ruled the work available while suppressing several polynominal names. The Coleoptera polynominal names recommended for suppression are: Lampyris noctiluca communis (vol. 4, p. 31), Elater fuscus major (vol. 4, p. 146), Elater fuscus minor (vol. 4, p. 146), Elater aeneus rufipes (vol. 4, p. 149), Elater fuscus flavipes (vol. 4, p. 151), Silpha nigra major (vol. 4, p. 173), Leptura aquatica spinosa (vol. 5, p. 140), Leptura aquatica mutica (vol. 5, p. 142), Leptura aquatica fasciata (vol. 5, p. 142), Leptura aquatica aenea (vol. 5, p. 143), Chrysomela marginella ranunculi (vol. 5, p. 304), Chrysomela viridis alni (vol. 5, p. 306), Chrysomela coerulea betulae (vol. 5, p. 317), Chrysomela coerulea salicis (vol. 5, p. 318), Chrysomela grisea alni (vol. 5, p. 325), Chrysomela cylindrica 4-punctata (vol. 5, p. 329), Chrysomela rubra liliorum (vol. 5, p. 339) and Chrysomela 22-punctata obscura (vol. 5, p. 380). In Opinion 2333 (ICZN 2014) the Commission suppressed these polynominal names and placed them on the Official Index of Rejected and Invalid Specific Names in Zoology. In the same Opinion, volumes 3–7 (1773–1778) of DeGeer’s Mémoires pour servir a l’histoire des insectes have been placed on the Official List of Works Approved as Available for Zoological Nomenclature.

Dejean, Pierre François Marie Auguste (Count) (Amiens, Somme, France: 10 August 1780 – 17 March 1845: Paris, France). French military officer and entomologist, specialized on Coleoptera; joined the army at the age of 15 and moved on to become general of division and aide-de-camp to Napoleon Bonaparte; collected insects in several countries, including Spain, Portugal, Germany, and Russia, where his military activity took him; went in exile in June 1815 and for the next three years collected in the eastern parts of the Austrian empire; returned in Paris at the end of 1818 and devoted the rest of his life mostly to entomology and politics, as he became a member of the Chambre des Pairs in 1824; his collection, the largest private beetle collection of his time, was sold in lots during 1840.

This edition of Lamarck’s work was issued in 11 volumes, 1835–1845. The Coleoptera are on pages 466–773 of volume 4. A third edition of Lamarck’s work was published in three volumes in Brussels, 1837–1839, under the same title with the addition of the words “Troisième édition, revue et augmentée de notes présentant les faits nouveaux dont la science s’est enrichie jusqu’a ce jour; par MM. G.P. Deshayes et H. Milne Edwards” [ANSP, GB]; the Coleoptera are on pages 160–264 of the second tome issued in 1839. According to Iredale (1922: 84–85) the third edition “must have been published in livraisons” as there are annotations first published in 1843 in the third volume dated 1839.

This volume was published in two parts: 1: (iv + xxxix + pp. 1–132) 18 December 1841 (Bibl Fr), 17 June 1842 (Soc Géog Fr); 2: (pp. 135–334) after March 1848, probably early 1850 (Bauchot et al. 1982: 63). The title page is dated 1841 and the avant-propos November 1841. Sherborn and Woodward (1901a: 391) dated the second part 1842 but Bauchot et al. (1982) found conclusive evidence that the reptile (pp. 133–154) and fish texts (pp. 155–216) were published after March 1848 and most likely in the early part of 1850. Since the insect section was not published separately, the insect names should be dated 1850.

There are two plates in the atlas illustrating insects, the second one (Insectes. Coléoptères Pl. 2) beetles. I have found no date of publication for the plates. All the names on the plates are in vernacular form.

Some of the new species of Coleoptera collected on this expedition were described earlier by F. Eydoux and L.F.A. Souleyet in Revue Zoologique, par la Société Cuvérienne 1839: 264–267 under the title “Descriptions sommaires de quelques Coléoptères nouveaux, provenant de Manille et destinés à être publiés dans le voyage autour du monde de la corvette la Bonite.”

The entire report of the expedition was published in 15 volumes of text and four atlases, 1840–1866. The zoology section consists of two volumes and an atlas of 101 engraved plates issued in several livraisons. The Vaillant expedition sailed via Cape Horn, and visited Brazil, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, and Colombia. The crew stayed a month in Hawaii, visiting both Kealakekua Bay and Honolulu, and then continued on to the Philippines and Canton. Cochin-China, Singapore, India, and finally St. Helena were also visited.

The entire Encyclopédie d’histoire naturelle consists of 31 volumes, 22 of text, illustrated with more than 8,000 figures and nine of tables (written by Eugène Desmarest), 1850–1861, under the direction of Jean Charles Chenu [1808–1879]. The Coleoptera section forms three volumes, 1850–1860, and one of tables, 1861 (Cowan 1971a). Although there is clear evidence that all three Coleoptera volumes were issued in series of livraisons, the publication dates of these cannot be established at this time. The first series of livraisons (3½ feuilles and 6 plates) was noticed on 21 September 1850 (Bibl Fr). No further livraisons were recorded in the Bibliographie de la France. The date of 1851 should be accepted for nomenclatural purposes. All three Coleoptera volumes contain type species designations for many genera.

Despite that the title pages of the three volumes of the Encyclopédie d’Histoire naturelle dealing with Coleoptera list Jean Charles Chenu as the author, the wrappers of the livraisons indicated that Desmarest was the author (see Bouchard et al. 2011: 12).

Annexes H–M are continuously paginated and include all the insects, except Lepidoptera.

A second edition was published in 1863 under the title “Notes sur l’île de la Réunion (Bourbon). Deuxième édition revue et corrigée” [GB] by the same publisher. There is no difference between the two editions regarding the Coleoptera section (Annexe H).

This work consists of a list of insects from the province of Vicenza in northeastern Italy. It was published in three fascicles (Nissen 1969: 118). I have seen the cover of the first fascicle which reads “Entomologia Vicentina.

An epitome of the natural history of the insects of China: comprising figures and descriptions of upwards of one hundred new, singular, and beautiful species; together with some that are of importance in medicine, domestic economy, &c. The figures are accurately drawn, engraved, and coloured, from specimens of the insects; the descriptions are arranged according to the system of Linnæus; with references to the writings of Fabricius, and other systematic authors. London. [96] pp. + [50] pls. (4to) [DP: 1798 (title page)] MCZ

The text and plates are unnumbered. This work was issued in parts. The Monthly Magazine recorded the first number on February 1798 and noticed that it will be completed in 17 monthly numbers. The work was noticed in the section “Books and pamphlets published in August 1799” by The Edinburgh Magazine. It was reviewed in the British Critic for the month of January 1800. Dates of publication are found on the plates. Eight plates deal with Coleoptera.

[1 April 1798]: Cerambyx rubus; Cerambyx reticulator; Cerambyx farinosus.

[1 May 1798]: Buprestis vittata; Buprestis ocellata.

[1 May 1798]: Scarabaeus molossus; Scarabaeus seniculus; Scarabaeus bucephalus.

[1 November 1798]: Curculio chinensis; Curculio longipes; ‒ barbirostris; ‒ verrucosus; ‒ squamosus; ‒ pulverulentus; ‒ perlatus.

[1 December 1798]: Scarabaeus midas; Scarabaeus nasicornis; ‒ cinctus; ‒ sacer; ‒ leei.

[1 January 1799]: Mylabris cichorei; Sagra femorata.

[1 March 1799]: Cetonia chinensis; Melolontha viridis.

[1 May 1799]: Curculio pulverulentus.

Of the 24 species of Coleoptera illustrated in this work, only one (Curculio chinensis) represents a new species, although it is a junior primary homonym.

Two subsequent editions were published in London: one on 28 May 1838 (title page), under the title “Natural history of the insects of China: a new edition with additional observations &c., by J. O. Westwood. The figures drawn from specimens of the insects by E. Donovan” [BHL], the other in 1842 under the title “Natural history of the insects of China, containing upwards of two hundred and twenty figures and descriptions, by E. Donovan. A new edition brought down to the present state of the science, with systematic characters of each species, synonyms, indexes, and other additional matter, by J. O. Westwood” [BHL, USNM]. A German translation by J.G. Gruber was published in Leipzig, in parts in 1802, under the title “E. Donovan’s Natur-Geschichte der Chinesischen Insekten. Enthaltend gegen hundert neue, besondere und schöne Spezies nach der Natur gezeichnet, und genau Kolorirt, auf den Pflanzen, worauf sie gewöhnlich leben, nebst Beschreibung nach Linnés Ordnung, mit Beziehung auf Fabricius und andere” (n.v.).

Donovan never set foot in China. He obtained most of the information from Sir George Stainton (Earl Macartney) of the Embassy to China, who travelled extensively in China and made collections and observations on natural history, which he conveyed to naturalists in England.

1800–1804. An epitome of the natural history of the insects of India, and the islands in the Indian seas: comprising upwards of two hundred and fifty figures and descriptions of the most singular and beautiful species, selected chiefly from those recently discovered, and which have not appeared in the works of any preceding author. The figures are accurately drawn, engraved, and coloured, from specimens of the insects; the descriptions are arranged according to the system of Linnaeus; with references to the writings of Fabricius, and other systematic authors. T. Bensley, London. 2 + [58] pp. + [58] pls. (4to) CNC, BHL

This work was issued in 14 parts, 1800–1804, with the pages and plates unnumbered. The publication dates are found on the plates. The Coleoptera are on six plates.

[1 February 1800]: Curculio regalis; Curculio palmarum.

[1 November 1800]: Carabus 6 maculatus; Carabus 2 maculatus.

[1 June 1802]: Buprestis sternicornis; Buprestis chrysis; – aenea; – 4 maculata.

[1 June 1804]: Pausus denticornis; Pausus thoracicus; – fichtelii; – pilicornis.

Only the four species illustrated on the plate dated 1 June 1804 are new to science.

A second edition of this book was published in 1842, in London, under the title “Natural history of the insects of India, containing upwards of two hundred and twenty figures and descriptions, by E. Donovan. A new edition, brought down to the present state of the science, with systematic characters of each species, synonyms, indexes, and other additional matter, by J. O. Westwood” [CMLE]. A facsimile of the second edition was published in Delhi in 1985. The original edition was limited to 250 copies.

Some copies have an additional title page which reads “General illustration of entomology: part I. An epitome of the insects of Asia, elucidated in one hundred and fifty plates; with occasional observations, and descriptions after the linnaean and fabrician manner. In three volumes.” The first volume corresponds to “An epitome of the natural history of the insects of China” [1798–1799] and the second to “An epitome of the natural history of the insects of India” [1800–1804].

Percheron (1837: 87) mentioned that this work was issued by cahiers.

The entire work consists of five volumes, 1823–1827, each consisting of 12 issues (numbers). The dates of publication are found on the plates and the date listed for volume 2 is for the completion of the volume. Coleoptera are depicted only on some plates of volumes 2 and 3.

The work was reissued in 1834 under the title “The naturalist’s repository, or miscellany of exotic natural history, exhibiting rare and beautiful specimens of foreign birds, insects, shells, quadrupeds, fishes, and marine productions; more especially such new subjects as have not hitherto been figured, or correctly described; forming a compendium of the most interesting modern discoveries in zoology. In five volumes, with one hundred and eighty coloured plates” [McG]. An abridged edition was published under the title “The naturalist’s repository of exotic natural history: consisting of seventy-two elegantly coloured plates, with appropriate scientific and general descriptions, of the most curious, scarce, and beautiful quadrupeds, birds, fishes, insects, shells, marine productions, and other interesting objects of natural history, the produce of foreign climates.

Drury, Dru (London, United Kingdom: 4 February 1725 – 15 January 1804: London, United Kingdom). British silversmith by profession and entomologist; spent a lot of energy and money on his collection of insects which included the specimens he described and named (in the index) in his Illustrations of natural history and also the type material of a number of species described by Fabricius; after his death, his collection was sold at auction by King and Lochee on 23–25 May 1805 and the whereabouts of most of his syntypes are unknown.

As noted by Evenhuis (1997a: 212), the plates were sold as each one was ready. Therefore the dates indicated above are those in which the completed volumes were first sold or noticed.

The ICZN (1957a) ruled in Opinion 474 that the date of publication of the index, published with the second volume of Drury’s work in 1773, containing names formed in accordance with the principles of binominal nomenclature, is the official date of publication of the species described and figured but not so named in the first volume issued in 1770. Although published with the second volume, the index is often bound with the first volume.

The work includes nine folded tables of classification at the end of the first volume of the series; the “Huitième tableau. Classification des insectes” pertains to insects. These tables are the work of Duméril (Duméril 1822: 522). The entire series consists of five volumes (1800–1805). The first two tomes were written by Duméril from the presentations given by Cuvier who reviewed and corrected the text; volumes 3–5 were written by C.L. Duvernoy again from the presentations given by Cuvier. These volumes are usually credited to Cuvier. The five volumes have been placed on the Official List of Works Approved as Available for Zoological Nomenclature in Direction 32 (ICZN 1956a) with the endorsement that the Latin names in the systematic tables in volume 1 are to be treated as available names, in so far as they are provided with “indications” for the purposes of Article 25 through the citation of bibliographical references on page xix of the Introduction.

The five volumes were reissued in 1805 [GB]. A reedition of the reissue was published in Brussels in 1969 (n.v.). A second edition, corrected and enlarged, was issued in nine volumes in Paris, 1835–1846 [GB, MCZ]. A third edition, consisting of the first three volumes of the second edition (Smith 1993: 172), was issued in Brussels, 1836–1840 [GB].

An English translation of the first two volumes of the series was issued in London, 1802, under the title “Lectures on comparative anatomy” (Smith 1993: 172). The tables were apparently published separately as “Synoptic tables of zoology, exhibiting a classification of animals, according to their internal structure” (Smith 1993: 173). A German translation of the first two volumes appeared in Braunschweig, 1801–1802, under the title “Vorlesungen über vergleichende Anatomie von G. Cüvier” (Smith 1993: 173).

Despite the date on the title page, this book seems to have been released only in 1872, apparently interrupted by the War of 1870 (Rowland-Brown 1915: 271). Only the first fascicle was issued. One new species of Coleoptera is described in this work, Larinus leuzeae (p. 109).

Fabricius, Johann Christian (Tønder, Sønderjylland, Denmark: 7 January 1745 – 3 March 1808: Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany). Danish entomologist and economist; at the age of 17, sent by his father to Uppsala and for the next two years studied under Linnaeus which profoundly influenced him; travelled across Europe for the next few years, attending lectures, studying collections, and collecting insects; returned to Copenhagen in 1769 and was appointed professor of economics at the University; accepted the professorship of natural history, economy and finance at Kiel in 1775; most specimens of Fabricius’ collection are now at the Zoologisk Museum, University of Copenhagen.

In Opinion 516, the ICZN determined that the date of publication of this work is “Easter Monday, 17th April 1775.” The ICZN decision is based on Fabricius’ own statement (see Hope 1845: ix) that the book appeared at the Leipzig Easter Book Fair in 1775. Evenhuis (2014a: 4) pointed out that the Fair was in fact presented on 7 May 1775.

This book is sometimes dated 1776 but considering the date of the preliminaries, I agree with many bibliographers that it was probably published in 1777. Percheron (1837: 106) mentioned a second edition published in 1790 in Kiel but this could not be corroborated in this study (see also Hagen 1862: 220).

A French translation was published in Paris, 1802, under the title “Voyage en Norwège, avec des observations sur l’histoire naturelle et l’économie, traduit de l’Allemand de Jean-Chrétien Fabricius” [GB]. A Dutch translation was issued in Amsterdam, 1781, under the title “Reize naar Noorwegen, nevens aanmerkingen uit de natuurlijke historie en oeconomie” (n.v.).

According to Evenhuis (1997a: 246), this work was also issued in 1780 in the second volume of Bibliothek der neuesten Reisebeschreibungen (n.v.).

Tom. II. 494 pp. [DP: 1781 (title page)26, May 1782 (Allg Verz Bücher), 28 September 1782 (Gött Anz)]. This volume does not pertain to Coleoptera except that the “Appendix specierum nuper detectarum” (pp. 495–510), which contains the description of several new species, including 31 species of beetles, is often bound with it. Fabricius, in his autobiography (see Hope 1845: xi), mentioned that his Systema insectorum appeared in 1782. So likely the second volume was published in 1782 despite the title page bears the date 1781.

Appendix specierum nuper detectarum. Pp. 495–510. [DP: 28 September 1782 (Gött Anz)]. The Göttingische gelehrte Anzeigen noticed on 28 September 1782 the publication of the second tome with 510 pages, indicating that this appendix was included. However, the second tome is often cited as originally published with only 494 pages (e.g., Hagen 1862: 220; Evenhuis 1997a: 247) and at least one copy seen [GB] had only the first 494 pages. Possibly two different printings were done on different dates, one without the appendix, the other with it. I have not seen notification for the Appendix synonymorum (pp. 511–514 [numbered [111]–114]) and the Index generum (pp. 515–517) which are often also bound with the second tome.

The entire work consists of two volumes issued in 1787 on different dates. The title of the second volume is different from that of the first and for that reason is listed separately (see next entry).

This volume does not pertain to beetles except for the Appendix (pp. 375–382) where 21 new species of beetles are described.

Tom. I. Pars II. 538 pp. [DP: n.d. (title page), in or before December 1792 (see remark below), 4 May 1793 (Gött Anz), 15 May 1793 (Allg Lit Ztg)]. As discussed by Löbl and Smetana (2011: 21), Hellwig (1792: 408) cited the correct page and number for the genus Lyctus in the second part of Fabricius’ book, clearly suggesting that he had Fabricius’ book in front of him. The cover of the issue for Hellwig’s paper in the journal Neuestes Magazin für die Liebhaber der Entomologie bears the date “Dezember 1792.” In addition, the cover of the journal (available on GB) has a text dated “Stralsund im December 1792” which mentioned that the second part of Fabricius’ Entomologia systematica is published. Therefore, it is assumed that Fabricius’ second part of the first volume of his Entomologia systematica was published in or before December 1792.

Tom. IV. [6] + 472 + [5 (Index generum)] pp. [DP: 1794 (title page), 26 January 1795 (Gött Anz)]. Several Coleoptera species are described in the “Appendix specierum nuper detectarum” (pp. 435–462).

The entire work was published in six parts forming four volumes, 1792–1794. The Coleoptera are in the first and fourth volumes.

The “Index genervm et speciervm” in the second volume (pp. 611–687) was also issued separately in 1802 under the title “Index genervm et speciervm Systematis Elevtheratorvm” [GB]. Another edition of the index was issued in 1803, under the title “Index alphabeticvs in I.C. Fabricii Systema Elevtheratorvm genera et species continens,” by C.G. Fleckeisen in Helmstedt [CMLE].

A facsimile of Fabricius’ Systema Eleutheratorum was published in 1970 by Asher in Vaals.

Fabricius, Otto (Rudkøbing, Fyn, Denmark: 6 March 1744 – 20 May 1822: Copenhagen, Denmark). Danish clergyman, ethnographer and naturalist; at the age of 24 went to the west coast of Greenland to evangelize the Inuits and stayed for five and a half years, making observations on the habits of the Eskimos and the fauna; upon his return in 1773, appointed bishop in various places in Norway and Denmark, including Copenhagen from 1789 to the time of his death.

This work contains ten parts, each separately paginated, issued separately in 1882. The wrapper for the contribution of Fairmaire et al. was not seen during this study but it is probably dated June 1882 as noticed in the Bulletin bibliographique (p. 22) of volume 3 (sixième série) of the Annales de la Société Entomologique de France.

The second part of the sixth volume of the Mission scientifique du Cap Horn includes eight sections, each separately paginated. The title page of volume 6 (second part) bears the date of 1891, but the wrapper of the “Insectes” section (Coléoptères + Hémiptères + Névroptères + Lépidoptères + Diptères) has the date 1888. Woodward (1904: 603) and Derksen and Scheiding-Göllner (1968: 110) listed the publication date as 1887 but this date could not be confirmed by Evenhuis (1997a: 92) nor by myself. The date of “15 February 1888” listed for the publication of the “Insectes” section by Evenhuis (1997a: 92) and Low and Evenhuis (2012: 71, 73) and taken from the Bibliographie de la France is a lapsus for 25 February 1888.

The descriptions of the new Coleoptera species were first published in the Annales de la Société Entomologique de France (6) 5 [1885]: 33–70. A few changes were made in this fascicle: the name Brachymys Fairmaire, 1885 was changed to Pachymys and Hornius Fairmaire, 1885 to Hornibius.

This catalogue was included, with separate pagination, in the Revue d’Entomologie7 [1888]: 1–16; 8 [1889]: 17–32; 10(1): 33–40 [DP: January 1891 (title page)]; 10(2): 41–48 [DP: February 1891 (title page)]. It covers only the Cicindelidae, Carabidae, Dytiscidae, Gyrinidae, Micropeplidae and part of the Staphylinidae. Apparently no title page was issued for this publication; the title reported here is that given in the content of parts 1 and 2 of volume 10 of the Revue d’Entomologie. Three new family-group names are proposed in this work.

This work is an adaptation of the first edition of Linnaeus’ Systema Naturae published in 1735. The Coleoptera are on pages 74–76. The genera are briefly described and some have binominal specific names associated with them. Two Coleoptera genera, Notopeda (p. 74) and Buceros (p. 75), were not used again as valid names by Linnaeus in his 1758 version of the Systema Naturae28 or subsequent publications nor by any other authors after 1758 until Fée made them available. One of the genera, Notopeda, is listed and attributed to Fée (1830) in Sherborn’s (1928: 4419) Index Animalium and Neave’s (1940: 355) Nomenclator Zoologicus.

There is no author listed on the title page but the second page reads “Museum-Demidoff. Mis en ordre systématique et décrit par G. Fischer. Tome troisième. Végètaux et animaux. Avec 6 planches.” The Coleoptera are on pages 37–49, 53–73, 98–101 and the new species described are Melolontha macrotarsa (p. 41), M. serrata (p. 41), Curculio erythrophthalmus (p. 42), C. tuberculatus (p. 42), C. caesius (p. 43), Lamia cincta (p. 44), Erotylus oblongo-guttatus (p. 44) and Cassida cayennensis (p. 49). Some of these species are dated 1809 (e.g., Sherborn in his Index Animalium) since Fischer von Waldheim redescribed them in the second volume of the Mémoires de la Société Impériale des Naturalistes de Moscou.

Despite the date on the title page, this book must have been published in 1808 considering the date of the preface. The entire series consists of three volumes, 1806–1808. Hagen (1862: 235) mentioned a second edition issued in 1817 (n.v.).

The half-title page reads “Tabulae synopticae zoognosiae in usum auditorum editae. Cum tabulis aeneis.” The first edition of this work was issued in 1805 under the title “Tables synoptiques des animaux” (n.v.); the third edition was issued in 1813 (see next entry).

Evenhuis (1997a: 264) dated this book 1809; however, the copy on BHL is clearly dated 1808 and the dedication 15 November 1808 in the Julian calendar or 28 November 1808 in the Gregorian calendar.

[DP: 1820–1822 (title page; preface dated 25 March 1821 [JD], dedication dated 18 May 1822 [JD]), June 1823 (Allg Lit Ztg)]. According to Sherborn (1922a: liii), the plates were issued in 1820 and the text after May 1822. However, the volume was issued by livraison as expressed by Fischer von Waldheim (1820: 6). A report about this volume by Latreille (1822), read at the Academy of sciences on 12 November 1821, indicated that 13 plates (six on Coleoptera, one on Orthoptera, two on Nevroptera and four on Lepidoptera) were published; furthermore it is evident from the context that at least the first 36 pages were issued at that time.

According to Sherborn (1922a: liii) the plates were issued in 1823 and the text after November 1824. However, this volume and the following one were very likely issued in livraisons as for the first volume.

Auctoritate societatis Caesareae naturae scrutatorum Mosquensium, in lucem edita. Tomus III. Cicindeletas et Carabicorum partem continens, cum XVIII tabulis aeneis. viii + [1] + 314 pp. + 18 pls. [DP: 1825–1828 (title page; approuved for publication 10 November 1828 [JD])]. Some of the plates were available as early as 1824. Indeed, in the second volume of the work, issued in 1824, Fischer von Waldheim stated (pp. 263–264) that plates I–IX of the third volume have been engraved; he also listed the species names for each plate. I have not been able to find any indication for the engraving dates of the remaining plates. The copy of this volume on GB has another title page, dated 1825, which reads “Entomographie de la Russie. Tome III.”

The entire series consists of five volumes, the fourth one, dealing with Orthoptera, was published in volume 8 of the Nouveaux Mémoires de la Société Impériale des Naturalistes de Moscou, 1846, and the fifth one, dealing with Lepidoptera and authored by Fischer von Waldheim and Eduard Eversmann, was published in 1851 by Semen, Moscow.

Another title page, also dated 1821, reads “Genres des insectes publiés au nom de la Société Impériale des Naturalistes.” Sherborn (1922a: liii) mentioned that this work was published after September 1821. This is probably an error originating from the date on the recto of the title page which reads “15 Septembris. 1820” (not 1821).

This publication is part of the first volume of the Entomographia imperii Russici as indicated by Fischer von Waldheim in his preface of the Entomographia (p. [v]) and is usually bound with it.

This booklet contains a letter addressed to Henri Pander by Fischer von Waldheim (pp. 3–4) and a section entitled “Catalogus Animalium in itinere inde ab Orenburg ad Bokaram usque collectorum” (pp. 5–15).

Several Coleoptera are described in this publication but many of them were already available from Fischer von Waldheim’s plates of the Entomographia imperii Russici published in 1820.

This work was published in two parts, issued simultaneously, with continuous pagination. The Coleoptera are in the first part on pages 1–174 and 176. The book was reissued in 1805 by Méquignon in Paris (n.v.) as noted in the Journal Général de la Littérature de France 8: 98. All new taxa validated in this work are attributed to Geoffroy, as discussed by Ganglbauer and Heyden (1906: 301–302) and Cameron (1988).

Menke (1988) pointed out that this work is not consistently binomial and that under the Code [Article 11.4] the names are not available. There are about 1690 species described and named in both parts. Of these names only four are probably not binominal (Miguel A. Alonso-Zarazaga, personal communication): one in the first part (Psylla chermes buxi, p. 223) and three in the second part (Phaloena pavonia major, p. 257; Phaloena pavonia media, p. 257; Phaloena pavonia minor, p. 258). Sherborn (1902) retained one of these names, Psylla chermes-buxi (p. 200).

This work was suppressed for nomenclatural purposes by the ICZN (1954b) but eventually removed from the Official Index of Rejected and Invalid Works in Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN 1994). The Commission ruled that the following generic names of Coleoptera were made available from this work: Altica, Anthrenus, Anthribus, Bostrichus, Cerocoma, Copris, Crioceris, Cryptocephalus, Diaperis, Galeruca, Gyrinus, Hydrophilus, Notoxus, Omalisus, Platycerus, Prionus, Ptilinus, Pyrochroa, and Stenocorus. The generic names Cistela and Rhinomacer were suppressed for the purposes of the Principle of Priority but not for those of the Principle of Homonymy and Byrrhus, Cucujus, Melolontha, Peltis, and Tritoma were suppressed for the purposes of both the Principle of Priority and the Principle of Homonymy.

The entire work consists of four volumes of text and three volumes of plates, issued in livraisons combining text and plates. The first volume was authored by Laporte and Gory, 1835–1838 [q.v.], the second by Gory and Laporte, 1836–1840, and the fourth one by Gory alone, 1840–1841 (see next entry). The third volume is a reissue of the Monographie du genre Clytus, first published in 1836–1837 by Laporte and Gory [q.v.], dated 1841 where the author’s names are inverted. The content and dates of publication of this volume are discussed under the entry for Laporte and Gory, 1835–1838.

Although the title page indicated that Gory was the sole author of this volume, Gory (1841: 392) himself mentioned that by an unfortunate error the name of his friend was omitted on the title page [“par erreur qui m’est entièrement étrangère et contre laquelle j’ai déjà réclamé, le nom de mon collaborateur et ami se trouve accidentellement omis].”A corrected title page was eventually issued with Gory and Laporte as the authors.

The entire series consists of four volumes of text and three volumes of plates (see previous entry). This volume, the fourth of the series, was issued in ten livraisons (corresponding to livraisons 43–52 of the entire series) containing text and plates. It was authored by Gory alone and is the only volume of the series continuously paginated. Dates found during this research are: 43–45: (pp. 1–??) 7 April 1841 (Soc Ent Fr); 46–50: (pp. ??–??) 1 September 1841 (Soc Ent Fr), 20 September 1841 (Acad Sci Fr); 51–52: (pp. ??–356) November 1841 (Rev Zool). The title pages for the text and atlas are dated 1841 and the preliminaries August 1840 (p. 2). The Atlas contains 60 plates and some were issued with livraisons 40–43 (Guérin-Méneville 1840: 342) noticed on 16 November 1840 by the Académie des Sciences de France. Sherborn (1922a: lxxviii), without qualification, gave the dates of 1840 for pages 1–206 and 1841 for pages 207–356. Both Obenberger (1926: 1) and Nelson and Bellamy (1993: 298) gave the date 1841 for livraisons 43–52.
