          Resumen: Las cañadas de Coatepec Harinas, ubicadas al sur del Nevado de Toluca, son de interés para la conservación por su integridad biológica. En este estudio se presenta la composición de Scarabaeidae, Geotrupidae, Hybosoridae, Trogidae y Silphidae, además se analizan aspectos como abundancia, riqueza, diversidad y estacionalidad. Esta información servirá para el desarrollo de estudios comparativos posteriores realizados fuera de las cañadas. Los muestreos fueron mensuales durante un año con trampas tipo NTP-80 cebadas con calamar, en un bosque de encino con elementos de mesófilo de montaña. Se obtuvieron 1,513 individuos pertenecientes a 9 especies y 8 géneros. Silphidae (94.3%) fue la familia más abundante, seguida por Scarabaeidae (4.7%), ambas con 3 especies cada una; las restantes, una especie y menos de 10 ejemplares. Nicrophorus mexicanus Matthews, 1888 (Silphidae), Nicrophorus olidus Matthews, 1888 (Silphidae), Oxelytrum discicolle (Brullè, 1840) (Silphidae) y Oniticellus rhinocerulus Bates, 1889 (Scarabaeidae) agruparon el 99%. Germarostes Paulian, 1982 (Hybosoridae) se registró por primera vez para el Estado de México. La estacionalidad fue marcada: el 87.5% de la abundancia y las 9 especies obtenidas se registraron en las lluvias. La diversidad y la cobertura de la vegetación, así como la presencia de arroyos, propiciaron condiciones favorables para las 4 especies más abundantes.

          Abstract: The glens of Coatepec Harinas in the southern part of Nevado de Toluca are of conservation concern because of their biological integrity. This study reveals the composition of the Scarabaeidae, Geotrupidae, Hybosoridae, Trogidae and Silphidae of the Coatepec Harinas’ glens, and analyzes their abundance, species richness, diversity and seasonality. Such information can be used for further comparative studies conducted outside the glens. Monthly samples were obtained during a year using traps type NTP-80 baited with squid in an oak forest with some elements of cloud forest. A total amount of 1,513 individuals belonging to 9 species and 8 genera were collected. Silphidae (94.3%) was the most abundant family, followed by Scarabaeidae (4.7%), both of which had 3 species each; the remaining families had 1 species and less than 10 specimens. Moreover, Nicrophorus mexicanus Matthews, 1888 (Silphidae), Nicrophorus olidus Matthews, 1888 (Silphidae), Oxelytrum discicolle (Brullè, 1840) (Silphidae) and Oniticellus rhinocerulus Bates, 1889 (Scarabaeidae) grouped together 99% of individuals. Germarostes Paulian, 1982 (Hybosoridae) was recorded for the first time in the Estado de México. The seasonality was evident, 87.5% of the abundance and the 9 species were collected during the rainy season. The diversity of plants and tree canopy cover, as well as the presence of the stream, propitiated favorable conditions for the 4 most abundant species.

            Family-group names in Coleoptera (Insecta)

            Abstract We synthesize data on all known extant and fossil Coleoptera family-group names for the first time. A catalogue of 4887 family-group names (124 fossil, 4763 extant) based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given. A total of 4492 names are available, 183 of which are permanently invalid because they are based on a preoccupied or a suppressed type genus. Names are listed in a classification framework. We recognize as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663 tribes and 740 subtribes. For each name, the original spelling, author, year of publication, page number, correct stem and type genus are included. The original spelling and availability of each name were checked from primary literature. A list of necessary changes due to Priority and Homonymy problems, and actions taken, is given. Current usage of names was conserved, whenever possible, to promote stability of the classification. New synonymies (family-group names followed by genus-group names): Agronomina Gistel, 1848 syn. nov. of Amarina Zimmermann, 1832 (Carabidae), Hylepnigalioini Gistel, 1856 syn. nov. of Melandryini Leach, 1815 (Melandryidae), Polycystophoridae Gistel, 1856 syn. nov. of Malachiinae Fleming, 1821 (Melyridae), Sclerasteinae Gistel, 1856 syn. nov. of Ptilininae Shuckard, 1839 (Ptinidae), Phloeonomini Ádám, 2001 syn. nov. of Omaliini MacLeay, 1825 (Staphylinidae), Sepedophilini Ádám, 2001 syn. nov. of Tachyporini MacLeay, 1825 (Staphylinidae), Phibalini Gistel, 1856 syn. nov. of Cteniopodini Solier, 1835 (Tenebrionidae); Agronoma Gistel 1848 (type species Carabus familiaris Duftschmid, 1812, designated herein) syn. nov. of Amara Bonelli, 1810 (Carabidae), Hylepnigalio Gistel, 1856 (type species Chrysomela caraboides Linnaeus, 1760, by monotypy) syn. nov. of Melandrya Fabricius, 1801 (Melandryidae), Polycystophorus Gistel, 1856 (type species Cantharis aeneus Linnaeus, 1758, designated herein) syn. nov. of Malachius Fabricius, 1775 (Melyridae), Sclerastes Gistel, 1856 (type species Ptilinus costatus Gyllenhal, 1827, designated herein) syn. nov. of Ptilinus Geoffroy, 1762 (Ptinidae), Paniscus Gistel, 1848 (type species Scarabaeus fasciatus Linnaeus, 1758, designated herein) syn. nov. of Trichius Fabricius, 1775 (Scarabaeidae), Phibalus Gistel, 1856 (type species Chrysomela pubescens Linnaeus, 1758, by monotypy) syn. nov. of Omophlus Dejean, 1834 (Tenebrionidae).
