  • Welcome to Coleopterological Society of Japan

    Image This is a society of the scientists studying the beetles (Coleoptera), mainly on taxonomy. We have published many description of new species since 1946.

     In 2010, "The Japan Coleopterological Society" and "The Japanese Society of Coleopterology" were combined.  A new society began at the beginning of 2011 under the name of "The Coleopterological Society of Japan" (Head Office: National Science Museum, Tsukuba).  "The Entomological Review of Japan, Osaka" and "Elytra, Tokyo" are succeeded to a new biannually issued journal "Elytra (New Series)".
