C. A. Triplehorn (Charles A.)

My broad interests are in systematics and biogeography of Coleoptera. More specifically, my research is primarily on the large family Tenebrionidae, especially those of the Western Hemisphere. Since retirement (1992), I have concentrated on two major projects: a revision of the genus Eleodes and of the Neotropical Diaperini. I continue the seemingly endless task of compiling a catalog of the Tenebrionidae of the United States and Canada. That project has enabled me to spot groups in need of revision and gives me a broad perspective of the entire family.
