The photographs of the over 1000 southeast Asian beetle species on this website can be accessed from this overview of beetle families. The photographed mounted specimen are deposited in expert's collections or in public natural history collections.

Beetles in specific collections:
- Beetles collected from cacao trees
- Living beetles
- Type specimen
- Kalshoven beetle species (that appeared in Kalshoven's 1950 "De plagen van de kultuurgewassen in Indonesiƫ")

My PhD thesis is deposited here.

Dozens of beetle experts have helped identifying the beetles on this webpages.

I do not have the luxury anymore of having time to maintain the contents of this website. Anyway, if you have questions or suggestions, feel free to contact me through LinkedIn (preferred) or mail at boommarter[at]
