Abstract

The members of the order Coleoptera can be distinguished readily from all other insects, except the earwigs, by the horny, veinless wing-covers which meet in a straight line down the back, beneath which there is a simple pair of membraneous wings. Beetles differ from earwigs mainly in not having the pincer-like appendages at the tail-end of the body, characteristic of the earwigs.
