Abstract

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. Madge, Commonwealth Inst. of Ent., c/o Brit. Mus. (Nat. Hist.), Cromwell Road, London, SW7 5BD, England. Hatch (1928) cited type-species for most ge- nus-group names in the beetle family Silphidae, omitting them for only a few junior synonyms. Unfortunately, he gave no indication of where, when or by whom any of these designations were made. For types fixed in the original publication this is not a serious omission. But for types se- lected by subsequent designation this informa- tion may be essential to decide the valid type of a genus. 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
