Dear Colleagues

About Phaeochrous Laporte (Hybosorinae)

Héctor … you provided Endrödi (1959) which Jason requested … which I also needed. Thanks!

[citations below]

1.   Kuijten (1978) was critical of Endrödi’s (1959) treatment of the Afrotropical Phaeochrous. After study of the specimens on which Endrödi (1959) based his publication, Kuijten (1978: 4) commented that

“Although it is far from me to criticize here Endrödi's revision, some obvious errors are to be eliminated.”

, upon which he really laid in his rapier. The corrections there, however, seem to be provisional only.

I believe that the true state-of-the-art regarding Phaeochrous from the Afrotropics is hidden in Kuijten (1986), a paper which I fail miserably to get hold of.

2.   For the Afrotropical Phaeochrous, there are significant differences between the checklist of Allsopp (1984) and the catalogue of Ocampo & Ballerio (2006). I cannot reconcile these differences without – I believe – consulting Kuijten (1986), a paper which I fail miserably to get hold of.


Would anybody kindly supply me with a PDF of this publication?:

Kuijten PJ (1986) Revision of the African and Madagascan species of Phaeochrous Castelnau, 1840 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Hybosorinae).
•|Koninklijke Museum voor Midden-Afrika Tervuren, Zoologische Wetenschappen 249: 1–50.|=|Musée Royal de l’Afrique Centrale Tervuren, Sciences Zoologiques 249: 1–50.|
•?|Annales Musée Royal de l’Afrique Centrale, Serie in 8°, Sciences Zoologiques 249: 1–50.|

As is clear from the above, I have a problem with the correct citation. Nevermind that then, it is THIS PUBLICATION< > that I need, but I don’t have money to buy one and I don’t want literature on paper any more.

I thank anybody in advance,
