Roger-Paul Dehambre (France)
Following the cessation of publication of the Bulletin de la Société Sciences Nat in 1995, there was a major need of entomologists for a journal that could publish descriptions of new species of insects very rapidly, and the same year the journals Coléoptères and Besoiro were established.
Each number follows some rules about presentation and contains only one work. Black-and-white figures, but also many colour photographs, illustrate the publications.
At the beginning, several authors published in the journal, but now only some specialists do, mainly Philippe Antoine Cetoniidae, Roger-Paul Dechambre Dynastidae, Thierry Deuve Carabidae, Gérard Tavakilian Cerambycidae, and Marc Lacroix Melolonthinae.
Each issue is produced at about hundred copies, of which many are sent to other specialists in the world, and about 50 copies are available for sale. When an issue is exhausted, a reissue is done.
