Excerpt from A Catalogue of Lucanoid Coleoptera: With Illustrations and Descriptions of Various New and Interesting Species

The most important collections of the species of this division are to be found in the cabinets of Count Mniszech and Mr. Thomson at Paris (the latter especially interesting as including the species from the collections of Count Dejean, M. Laferte and M. Reiche), in the British Museum, and in the cabinets ofthe late Rev. F. W. Hope (so liberally presented to the University of Oxford) and Mr. W. W. Saunders; and, lastly, in my own col lection, which contains, I believe, the largest number of species ever brought together.

With reference to the respective families it is not my intention to propose any very great change in the classification; nevertheless I feel that much in this respect is still required, but it appears to me that the period for such re-organization has not yet arrived, a greater knowledge of species being absolutely requisite for under taking such a task. Should our collections continue to be en riched as they have been of recent years, this desirable object might then be successfully undertaken, for I am convinced that it is only by placing before the eye a sufficient series of the insect to be described (and this is more especially true of the Lucanoid Coleoptera) that a just appreciation of its general form and character can he arrived at. It is vain to expect to ascertain the true characters ofa genus until the species shall themselves have been properly established; and the development of species so peculiar in the Lucanoid Coleoptera has but too often given rise to great confusion, specimens having not unfrequently been mistaken by Entomologists as the types of distinct species, and described as such, when in fact they were but varieties of species previously known. As already stated, this, my tribute to the Society, must be considered simply as a rectified catalogue, including notices, descriptions and figures of various new and interesting species.
