The introduction is followed by brief discussions of some important works not mentioned in Part 1, particularly those dealing with relationships of extinct taxa.
... The bostrichid beetles are commonly known as powder-post beetles and are of considerable economic importance to forestry and the lumber dependent industries because of the ability of the larvae and some adults to reduce bamboo and sapwood timber into a powdery frass (Liu, 2010;Liu & Beaver, 2018;Liu & Geis, 2019). Many species are adapted to live in environments with low humidity (Crowson, 1981), hence their importance as pests of dried wood and products made of wood. ...

The powder post beetles (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) (except Lyctinae) of Yunnan Province in Southwest China are reviewed for the first time. Keys to twenty-six genera and fifty-two species from the Yunnan region are provided. One new genus and seven new species are described: Dinoderus (Dinoderastes) hongheensis sp. nov., Dinoderus (Dinoderastes) nanxiheensis sp. nov., Gracilenta yingjiangensis gen. nov., sp. nov., Calonistes vittatus sp. nov., Calophagus colombiana sp. nov., Xylodrypta guochuanii sp. nov. and Xylodrypta zhenghei sp. nov.. Fourteen species are recorded in China for the first time. The bostrichid fauna of Yunnan is compared with those of the neighbouring bio-geographically related Southeast Asian and Himalayan regions. The fauna has a close affinity with that of tropical Southeast Asia and a much weaker relationship with the Palearctic region. The differences with the Himalayas may reflect the separate evolutionary and complex geological history of the two areas.
... The bostrichid beetles are commonly known as powder-post beetles, because of the ability of the larvae and adults to reduce sapwood, particularly of hardwoods, into a powdery frass. Hence, the beetles are of considerable economic importance to forestry and the bamboo and lumber dependent industries (Stebbing 1914, Beeson & Bhatia 1937Liu 2010;Liu & Beaver 2018;Liu & Geis 2019). Bostrichids are frequently transported between countries in dry wood, especially in wood packing materials such as crates, pallets and dunnage, and are often intercepted at ports and cargo distribution centres (Haack 2006;Eyre et al. 2018;Liu & Geis 2019). ...

An updated and annotated synopsis of the family Bostrichidae of mainland China is presented, including sixty-eight species belonged to seven subfamilies (including eight tribes), and twenty-nine genera. Thirteen species are new records for mainland China, and numerous new provincial records are given. Four species, Dolichobostrychus yunnanus Lesne, 1913, Heterobostrychus ambigenus Lesne, 1920, Sinoxylon eucerum Lesne, 1932 and S. rejectum (Hope, 1845) are endemic to mainland China. The faunal elements present and their composition are discussed, and the zoogeographical distribution of species within mainland China.

L’esigenza di studiare la fauna dei Coleotteri delle 10 Riserve Naturali dello Stato gestite dal Reparto Carabinieri Biodiversità di Belluno, al fine di approfondirne le conoscenze, ha messo in evidenza la necessità di disporre di uno strumento “agile” per la determinazione delle numerose famiglie di Coleotteri della nostra fauna. Da questa necessità è nata l’iniziale idea di sviluppare una chiave dicotomica ricca di immagini e schemi di dettaglio, che in corso d’opera è stata poi arricchita anche dalle tavole anatomiche e dal glossario. A completamento del progetto, è sembrato utile allegare un catalogo di tutte le 13047 specie di Coleotteri ad oggi segnalate per il nostro Paese, oltre ad una sintetica descrizione delle famiglie esaminate, corredata da note bio-ecologiche e dall’indicazione di alcuni strumenti bibliografici utili per la determinazione a livello specifico degli esemplari in studio. Quest’opera rappresenta principalmente uno strumento adatto a suddividere i Coleotteri della fauna d’Italia in un totale di 148 famiglie, permettendo talvolta di discriminare tra generi o specie diverse, soprattutto nel caso di famiglie per le quali la fauna italiana risulta composta da poche specie. Tutte le informazioni e i dati che sono qui riportati (caratteri anatomici, note biologiche ed ecologiche, numero di specie ...) fanno riferimento esclusivamente alle specie di Coleotteri presenti in Italia, con aggiornamento al mese di novembre 2021. La struttura di questa chiave dicotomica si basa sullo studio e la rielaborazione, con adattamento per le specie della fauna italiana, di numerosi lavori scientifici e chiavi dicotomiche che vengono riportati in bibliografia, oltre all’analisi diretta dei caratteri diagnostici, effettuata sul materiale della collezione entomologica del Reparto Carabinieri Biodiversità di Belluno e delle collezioni private degli autori. The need to study the Beetle fauna of the 10 State Natural Reserves managed by the Reparto Carabinieri Biodiversità of Belluno, in order to increase their knowledge, has highlighted the need to have a "smart" tool for determining the numerous families of Beetles of our fauna. From this need, the initial idea of developing a dichotomous key, rich in images and detailed schemes, was born. The key was then enriched with anatomical tables and a glossary. To complete the project, it seemed useful to add a catalogue of all 13047 species of Beetles reported to date for our Country, as well as a brief description of the examined families, with bio-ecological notes and a list of some bibliographic tools to be used for the determination of the specimens under study at the specific level. This work mainly represents a suitable tool for dividing the Beetles of the Italian fauna into a total of 148 families, sometimes allowing to distinguish different genera or species, especially in the case of families composed of a few italian species. Information and data here given (anatomical characters, biological and ecological notes, number of species ...) refer exclusively to the species of Coleoptera recorded for Italy, updated on November 2021. The structure of this dichotomous key is based on the study and re-elaboration of numerous scientific works and dichotomous keys, that are listed in bibliography, with adaptation for the species of the Italian fauna, in addition to the direct analysis of the diagnostic characters of the specimens of the entomological collection of the Reparto Carabinieri Biodiversità of Belluno and of the authors' private collections.
