Article: New Rhaetic and Liassic beetles
B. G. Gardiner
An isolated coleopteran elytron from the Lower Lias of Lyme Regis is described and named Elaterina liassica gen. et sp. nov. Six fragments of coleoptera including five pieces of elytra and one metasternum were collected from a fissure of Rhaetic age in the Carboniferous Limestone of South Wales. Their relationship with the present-day Cupedidae is considered and the fragments have been named Metacupes harrisi gen. et sp. nov.
