Annotated catalog of the Laniatores of the New World by Kury, 2003
The book reviews all the systematic literature dealing with the suborder Laniatores in the Americas up to December 31st 2002 (some 800 references). Nearly 2400 species, belonging to 750 genera and 21 families, are listed for the New World. Synonymies, reinstatements, replacement names and emended spellings are proposed where necessary. The work includes a special section with a list of the proposed nomenclatural acts, which include, among many others of a lower rank, proposals for a new family and subfamily. There is a list of species recorded from each country and maritime territory.
