NOTE: As of 2014, the California Beetle Project page is no longer updated. The original database and list of California beetles in the menu on the left will remain for the time being, but the information contained within is not necessarily current. SBMNH Entomology Curator Matthew L. Gimmel has divided up the function of the original database into two conceptual halves:
- The SBMNH Entomology specimen-level database, including all SBMNH beetle specimens included
in the CBP database, which is now available (and ever-growing) through the SCAN portal at http://symbiota4.acis.ufl.edu/scan/portal/
- A literature- (and available specimen-)based checklist.
of the Coleoptera of California, which is being revised and re-compiled by Dr. Gimmel, and, as of January 2017, is about 85% complete.
