updated world checklist of the genus Carabus

World Catalogue of The Genus Carabus (1999)
The Catalogue is a continuation of The Check-list of the Genus Carabus of the same author,published in 1994 (Klapalekiana, 30: 1-2).
In comparison with the latter, it includes not only valid names of the subgeneric, specific and subspecific level, but also all synonyms.
Detailed geographical distribution patterns as well as type localities are stated for all taxa treated as valid, and the type localities are stated
also in synonyms. Permanently invalid names (especially junior homonyms) as well as unavailable names are pointed out.
In taxonomy, also the results of the latest studies are applied, including those of DNA-analysis. All taxa described until June 1999
are included into the list. Concentrated in one compact book, the Catalogue provides enormous volume of taxonomic and zoogeographical data
necessary for each entomologist seriously interested in the Carabid beetles.
