The Tiger Beetles Series

In cooperation with museums, experts from all over the world (Jürgen Wiesner, David L. Pearson, Andrey Matalin, Georges Colas, Charles Dheurle, Arnošt Kudrna …) and with a support of many collectors, the Tiger Beetles series is focused on publishing all available species of the Cicidelidae family. The first step was the publication of the book “Tiger Beetles of the World” in November 2020, when a unique publication on the genera of the Cicindelidae family was created and structured according to Jürgen Wiesner.
The next continuation of the series will focus on the mapping of Tiger Beetles in individual biogeographic regions.
