Abstract

Common English and Chinese names are assigned to all known species and subspecies of tiger beetles in China. Rules for providing those names were adopted by the authors based on previous experience of others and from the literature. English common names were generally developed based on the scientific name. Chinese common names were adopted from those extant in the literature, where practical. Otherwise rules developed by the authors were used.
