Welcome to Beetles of Mauritius

The purpose of the web-site is to help local conservationists, international scientists and amateur entomologists in their study of Mauritian beetles and we hope that this resource will lead to the integration of insects in local conservation action on the island.

This site takes its classification from Nouvelle liste chorologique des coleopteres de l'archipel des Mascareignes (Gomy, 2000) from which a list of the beetle fauna of Mauritius was extracted. As many species as possible have been photographed.
