This is the third of 14 proposed Catalogue volumes dealing with the Australian beetle fauna. It covers the families:

  • Rhinorhipidae

  • Eucnemidae
  • Throscidae

It includes some of the well known beetles commonly referred to as click beetles, fireflies or soldier beetles.

 "Overall, the catalogue is excellent. It contains a wealth of information and provides a stepping-stone to far more."
Howard Mendel, Systematic Entomology Vol 24, 1999

"The high production standard developed in previous volumes continues. The book must be welcomed as an essential text for those interested in this important group of beetles."
Peter G. Allsopp, Australian Journal of Entomology Vol 38, 1999
