Summary "The first comprehensive account of adventive species of Coleoptera recorded from Atlantic Canada and Quebec is provided. Currently, 510 adventive species in 290 genera and 48 families of beetles are presented. Of these, 419 species are recorded from Quebec, 283 from New Brunswick, 357 from Nova Scotia, 198 from Prince Edward Island, and 195 species from insular Newfoundland and Labrador combined. The most adventive species are in the families Staphylinidae (120), Curculionidae (85), Carabidae (45) and Chrysomelidae (43). The adventive species constitute approximately 14.6% of the total species in 48 beetle families with adventive species in the region. The 48 beetle families are reviewed; their diagnostic features and a list of species with distribution data and dates of introduction are provided in tables under each family. A key to the families is also included. Forty-five images of morphological structures and 144 exemplary adventive species are provided, with each family of Coleoptera represented by at least one image."--Publisher's description
