Catching up with the updated editions of the second and third volumes on extant Palaearctic beetles, this first volume incorporates the most recent generally accepted views on three of the four suborders of Coleoptera: the basal Archostemata, the Myxophaga, and the species-rich Adephaga, which together represent about 10% of total beetle diversity.

Most molecular phylogenetic studies of beetles (order Coleoptera) using 18S rDNA have recovered the suborders Adephaga and Polyphaga as sister groups, together sister to the suborders Myxophaga and Archostemata, with Archostemata alone or in combination with Myxophaga as the closest relative of all other beetles.
The 16 superfamilies and 168 families of extant beetles are separated into four suborders: Adephaga (~35,000 species), Archostemata (~35 species), Myxophaga (~65 species), and Polyphaga (~315,000 species) (Lawrence and Newton, 1995; Arnett and Thomas, 2000; Arnett et al.
