A catalogue of type-species in the family Silphidae (Coleoptera) RONALD B. MADGE Complete type-species citations are presented for genus-group names in the beetle family Silphidae. Type designations are made for two names, Hyponecrodes Kraatz and Para- silpha Reitter, and new synonymy is proposed for the type-species of Oxelytrum Gistel. R. B.

The purpose of this catalogue is to bring our knowledge of type-species in the Silphidae up to date. It provides the information omitted by Hatch, makes some corrections, and gives coverage of several genus-group names either overlooked by Hatch or published subsequent to 1928. The Silphidae has long been difficult to define but it is now generally
