Memoirs on the Coleoptera, Vol. 6
Excerpt from Memoirs on the Coleoptera, Vol. 6: 1915 The primary divisions of the Scarabaeidae are not rigorously definable and, in fact, after so long a period of geologic evolution, it would be illogical to imagine any other condition than an inter blending of structural characters to such a degree as to render delimitation of extended groups, in other than a general way, more or less unsatisfactory. There is scarcely a structural feature defining one group that may not appear in some other group. This is in a measure true also of the more restricted subdivisions, such as genera, except when monotypic. The discussion of these points is made by Lacordaire so fully and so well, that it is not necessary to go into the subject at the present time and in a work designed more especially to differentiate and define the species of a restricted fauna.
