Abstract/Summary

Four new beetle species are described from the Lower Cretaceous Purbeck Limestone Group of southern England: Mesogyrus anglicus sp. nov. (Gyrinidae), Coptoclavella purbeckensis sp. nov. (Coptoclavidae), Palaeodytes incompleta sp. nov. (Dytiscidae) and Cretorabus suleatus sp. nov. (Carabidae). The first three taxa were aquatic; the last is terrestrial but may have frequented the margins of water bodies. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
