2016/12: Families Coreidae, Alydidae and Rhopalidae are almost complete for taxonomic data. More citations, distribution data, (type) specimen records and images are now being added.
The Coreoidea Species File database contains taxonomic and other information about all the leatherbugs of the world. It is under continual development as more specimen data and images are added. Presently, most names are included. A companion catalogue of the World Coreidae and Alydidae with more complete bibliographic references has been submitted to Zootaxa for publication.
To see information contained in the database, use the links across the top of the
page. Click on
Search to find a specific taxon or other kinds of information. Clicking
on Taxa will make the
SF Apex your current taxon unless you have previously moved to a different
taxon in this session.
This website and database use Species File Software. Information about the
design and use of SFS may be found on a separate website.
