Technical Bulletin 42
A checklist of beetles of South Dakota has been compiled from records from the following sources: the South Dakota State University Insect Collection, which consists of 325 Cornell drawers of Coleoptera; records in the senior author's personal collection, which consists of 84 Schmitt boxes of Coleoptera; and scattered literature citations. The checklist contains the scientific names for the beetle species; their common names, when given; localities in the state where the species had been collected, dates of collection, and ecological notes such as host plants, how collected, or habitat, when known. Sixty-nine families of beetles, including 695 genera and 1,955 species and subspecies, have been collected in South Dakota.
