CoLEoPTERA.—Of about 80 families into which the Coleoptera are divided, all the

more important are cosmopolite, or nearly so.

It would therefore unnecessarily occupy

space to give tables of the whole for each region. LAND SHELLs.-The more important families being cosmopolite, and the smaller ones being somewhat uncertain in their limits, the reader is referred to the account of the families and genera under each region, and to the chapter on Mollusca in the concluding part of this work, for such information as can be given of their distribution.

TABLE II.

LIST OF THE GENERA OF TERRESTIAL MAMMALIA AND BIRDS INHABITING THE PALEARCTIC REGION.

ExPLANATION.

Names in italics show genera peculiar to the region.
Names inclosed thus (...) show genera which just enter the region, but are not considered

properly to belong to it.
Genera which undoubtedly belong to the region are numbered consecutively.
