LANTERI, Analía A.; HERNANDEZ, Emilia P.  and  FLORES, Gustavo E.. A catalog of the type specimens of various families of Tenebrionoidea (Insecta: Coleoptera) housed at the "Museo de La Plata", Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2017, vol.76, n.3-4, pp.1-10. ISSN 0373-5680.

This contribution brings information on the type specimens of Coleoptera Tenebrionoidea deposited at the entomological collection of the Museo de La Plata (MLP). They belong to 29 species or subspecies of the families Aderidae (1 sp.), Anthicidae (11 spp.), Mordellidae (1 sp.), Oedemeridae (1 sp.), Rhipiphoridae (2 spp., 1 subsp.) and T enebrionidae of the subfamilies Alleculinae (3 spp.), Pimeliinae (5 spp., 2 subspp.) and Tenebrioninae (2 spp.). These types correspond to species described by the specialists C. Berg, C. Bruch, L. Fairmaire, M. Manfrini de Brewer, M. Pic, F. G. Werner and G. Flores. For each species we provide original and valid names, bibliographic reference, category of types, number assigned in the entomological collection of the MLP, sex (if it is indicated) and exact transcription of the labels. There is also additional information on specimens labeled as types but not having this status, because they were compared with types (19 species of Anthicidae, Ciidae, Mordellidae and Tenebrionidae Alleculinae) or corresponding to species seemingly not published.

Keywords : Museo de La Plata; Tenebrionoidea; Type material.
