Abstract

Austrian doctor Ludwig Redtenbacher was the entomologist aboard the Novara expedition of 1857 to 1859. He was especially interested in the order Coleoptera, or beetles. The ship circumnavigated the globe and Redtenbacher had many opportunities to indulge his passion. Beetles make up 25 percent of all the known creatures on the planet, of which the above are just a few examples. Note fig. 1 is a specimen of Polyacanthia flavipes (syn. Diastamerus tomentosus) – a native New Zealand longhorn beetle.
