MORPHOLOGY OF LYCIDAE WITH SOME CONSIDERATIONS ON EVOLUTION OF THE COLEOPTERA

ELYTRON, 2003, VOL. 17: 49-226
(ISSN: 0214-1353)


ABSTRACT
Morphology of Lycidae with some considerations on evolution of the Coleoptera. External and internal morphology of the family Lycidae and allied taxa is studied and analyzed. A cladistic analysis of the group is carried out. An evolution scenario of the lineage is discussed and a phylogenetic tree and a key to subfamilies are proposed. Dexoridae Kleine stat. n. is raised to the family level. Lyropaeinae Bock & Bockov stat. n. and Miniduliticolinae Kazantsev stat. n. are raised to the subfamily level within the Lycidae. Thilmanus Baudi is transferred from Drilidae to Thilmaninae subfam. n. within the Lycidae. Platerodrilini tr. n. is described. The Lycidae are hypothesized to consist of seven subfamilies, Lyropaeinae stat. n., Leptolycinae, Ateliinae, Thilmaninae, subfam. n., Miniduliticolinae, stat. n., Lycinae and Calochrominae. Lyponiina Bocak & Bocakova is transferred from Platerodini to Calochrominae incertae sedis. Phylogeny of the Coleoptera is discussed. The Coleoptera is hypothesized to be a polyphyletic taxon, not including the common ancestor of its two major lineages, the Polyphaga and the Archostemata-Adephaga-Myxophaga.
Key words: Coleoptera, Lycidae, morphology, phylogeny, taxonomy.
