The Australian ciid fauna is revised based on 75 described species (56 of them new) and three undescribed species, placed in 22 genera (nine of them new and nine newly recorded from Australia). The revision is considered preliminary, since about 50 other undescribed Australian species have been seen (usually as uniques or in short series), and it is likely that more will be found with increased intensive collecting. One additional New Caledonian species is also described, and one Cis species is considered to be based on a mislabelled Hawaiian specimen...

Motuotrichius yangi, new genus, new species is described from Motuo, southeastern Tibet. Motuotrichius seems to have a mixture of characters observed in the genera Epitrichius Tagawa, 1941, Indotrichius Krikken, 2009, Lasiotrichius Reitter, 1899, and Trichius Fabricius, 1775, but is separable from all the known Eurasian genera of Trichiina by the presence of a tooth on the inner side of the mesotibia in both sexes. The habitus, external characters, and male genitalia of Motuotrichius yangi are illustrated. The following new combinations are given: Gnorimotrichius albomaculatus (Moser, 1902), Gnorimotrichius signatus (Chûjô, 1940), Gnorimotrichius trilineatus (Ma, 1992), and Gnorimotrichius tronqueti (Antoine, 2002)...

BACKGROUND: Molecular diagnostics in the genetic myopathies often requires testing of the largest and most complex transcript units in the human genome (DMD, TTN, NEB). Iteratively targeting single genes for sequencing has traditionally entailed high costs and long turnaround times. Exome sequencing has begun to supplant single targeted genes, but there are concerns regarding coverage and needed depth of the very large and complex genes that frequently cause myopathies. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate efficiency of next-generation sequencing technologies to provide molecular diagnostics for patients with previously undiagnosed myopathies...

Following our previous contributions to the knowledge of Chinese Batraxis Reitter (Wang et al. 2016; Wang & Yin 2016), here we describe two more species from Yunnan, and provide new collecting records for two previously described species, based on the newly available material deposited in the National Museum, Prague, Czech Republic. The number of Batraxis species now reaches 63 species, 19 of them are known to occur in China.

The genus Phaeaphodius Reitter, 1892 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Aphodiinae) is revised and considered to consist of 12 species. A key to species and diagnosis of each species are given to fascilitate identification. Lectotypes are designated for A. costalis Gebler, 1848, A. sibiricus Harold, 1863, A. aeger Sharp, 1878, and A. solskyi Harold, 1871. Neotypes are designated for A. alleoni d'Orbigny, 1896, A. fusculus Reitter, 1892, and A. trucantangulus Reitter, 1894. The name Aphodius fusculus Reitter, 1892 is placed in synonymy with Esymus pusillus (Herbst, 1789) (new synonymy)...

The genus Speluncarius Reitter, 1886 (Harpalinae, Pterostichini) is made up by anophthalmous or almost blind species. The genus is related to Tapinopterus Schaum, 1858, which contains numerous species from the Balkan-Anatolian region and have more or less developed eyes. Speluncarius is distributed in the Western Palaearctic region; 26 species and one subspecies are known from Italy, the Balkan Peninsula and Turkey. The genus is classified in five subgenera, Elasmopterus Kraatz, 1886 (6 spp.); Hypogearius Jeannel, 1953 (3 spp...

Fossils of two tribes of the ant-like stone beetles, previously unknown in Eocene deposits, are recorded, based on inclusions in Baltic amber. Well-preserved specimens of Chevrolatia sp. (Chevrolatiini) and Cephennodes sp. (Cephenniini) are described, but the species lack reliable diagnostic characters and remain unnamed.
