Coleoptera - Clambidae

RES Handbooks for the identification of British Insects. Volume 4 part 6 (a).

C. Johnson, 1966,13pp.

The family Clambidae is represented in Britain by two genera, Clambus Fischer von Waldheim and Calyptomerus Redtenbacher, which together include nine undoubted British species. The former genus has been the subject of an exhaustive monograph of the Palaearctic species by Dr. S. Endrödy-Younga (1960); he later revised the genus Calyptomerus (Endrödy-Younga, 1961).

This handbook is the first of its kind in Britain to deal exclusively with the Clambidae, and hence contains more detail than is usual in the present series of Handbooks.
