BACHMANN, Axel O; GUZMAN DE TOME, Marta E  and  GUALA, Mariel E. Rev. Mus. Argent. Cienc. Nat. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.1, pp.99-106. ISSN 1853-0400.

The type specimens (all current categories) of Elateridae deposited in this Museum are catalogued: twenty-four names are recorded. The specific names are alphabetically entered a single list, followed by the generic ones in their original spellings. An account of the types actually here deposited follows, with a description of all the labels. Later combinations, and synonyms are mentioned insofar they are known to the authors. In order to assist in future research, two further lists are added: 1. of specimens labeled as types of names not found in the bibliography, and probably not published, and 2. of specimens labeled as types but not originally included in a type series, published or not after the original description (mainly 'allotypes').

Keywords : Type specimens; Elateridae; Coleoptera; Insecta.
