Descriptions

The descriptions were generated from a DELTA database (Dallwitz 1980; Dallwitz, Paine, and Zurcher 1993). The bold parts are diagnostic descriptions, generated with the aid of Intkey (Dallwitz, Paine and Zurcher 1995, 2000). They distinguish most taxa in at least two respects from all the other taxa in the full ‘Beetles of the World’ database (see Introduction).
