Revision of the Thaneroclerinae (Cleridae, Col.)
Mr. E. A. CHAPIN (in “Classification of the Philippine Components of the Coleopterous family Cleridae”; Philipp. Jrn. Sc. Vol. 25, No. 2, 1924, p. 165— 251) was the first to recognize the Thaneroclerinae as a distinct subfamily of the Cleridae, characterized chiefly by the broadly dilated anterior tarsi and the almost entire eyes. The discovery of a new species from Kashmir and of one from Sumatra has gradually led me to make a complete revision of this interesting group, in which I was very materially assisted by my friend Mr. P. VAN DER WIEL, who also executed all the figures, which accompany this paper, with one exception ¹). Further this work was supported very largely by the help of almost all important scientific institutions and that of some private collectors; most of these have entrusted to me all the materials which they possessed of this group. Therefore my grateful acknowledgments are due to: British Museum, London; Deutsches Entomologisches Institut der Kaiser Wilhelm-Gesellschaft, Berlin—Dahlem; Mr. F. C. DRESCHER, Bandoeng, Java; Mr. H. KÔNO, Sapporo, Japan; Dr. D. MAC GILLAVRY, Bergen-Binnen (Netherl.); Museo Civico di Storia Naturale, Genova; Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris; Museum nationale hungaricum, Budapest; Naturhistorisches Museum, Basel; Naturhistorisches Museum, Hamburg; Naturhistorisches Museum, Wien; Naturkundemuseum der Stadt Stettin; Mr. R. OBERTHÜR, Rennes; Mr. Maurice PIC, Digoin; Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden; Staatliche Museen für Tierkunde und Völkerkunde, Dresden; University Museum, Oxford; U.S. National Museum, Washington; Dr. D. L. UYTTENBOOGAART, Heemstede; Zoologisches Institut der Universität in München; Zoologisches Museum der Universität, Berlin.
