A catalog of the types of Gyrinidae, Haliplidae, Noteridae, Dytiscidae, Limnichidae, Elmidae, Dryopidae, Heteroceridae and Scirtidae (Insecta, Coleoptera) deposited in the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales, Buenos Aires

Axel Bachmann


The type specimens (all current categories) of Gyrinidae, Haliplidae, Dytiscidae, Noteridae (Adephaga), Limnichidae, Elmidae, Dryopidae, Heteroceridae and Scirtidae (Polyphaga) deposited in this Museum are listed; 52 names are recorded, 31 of them (60 %) represented here by name-bearing types ('primary' types). The specific and subspecific names were alphabetically filed, followed by the generic ones as they were spelled in the original publication (or the generic and specific names in the case of subspecies and varieties). Later combinations and/or current binomina are mentioned, as far as these are known to the author. Two lists are added: 1. of specimens labelled as types of names not found in the literature, and presumably not published, and 2. of specimens labelled as types, but not originally included as such, and published or not after the original description.
