Beetles, beetles, beetles …

Lizards, snails, caterpillars and beetles were common toys to play with when I was a child and enjoyed the countryside in La Palma or at the farm in Tenerife. Later, when I was a teenager I started a collection of beetles, and since then, I haven´t stopped, Entomology having become a Leitmotiv and umbilical cord with nature up to the present. Beetles were probably the hidden reason why I decided to study Biology at the University; when the pressure at home –a mild one– was to do something more “serious”, like Architecture, Agrarian engineering or Philosophy.  However, I have never worked in Entomology professionally; but always as a happy and priviledged amateur.


Entomological cabinet of Dr. A. Machado

When I finished my Biology Degree in La Laguna, the knowledge about Entomology of the Canary Islands was dispersed mainly in foreign institutions and journals. In 1976 I established, along with my wife and my brother, a cultural non-profit private association IBCER (International Bureau of Canarian Entomological Research) with the aim of collecting that information and offering a contact point for all researchers interested in our insect fauna.

IBCER was more or less useful until the Department of Zoology at the University of La Laguna, and the Natural History Museum of Santa Cruz consolidated their activity in Entomology during the 80,s. In January 1994, IBCER had 53 colleagues registered.

At present, IBCER is dormant, but my library stays open and the same spirit of assistance to any colleague persists in the second floor at home, where I have established my cabinet (you can see a set of photos at the end of this page). Now, I have the intention to provide as much information as I can through this web-site, mainly on Coleoptera, bibliography, and whatever is in my hands, with the only limit being that of available time.

Studying the Wollaston Collection

When you are young and looking at bugs, each group has attractive aspects: ants, springtails, spiders, grasshoppers, dragonflies… My interest in ground-beetles goes back to 1969, when I discovered a few black Microlestes close to my golf ball. Its perfect design just fascinated me. The choice was made and it received full support of Don José María Fernández, curator of the Museum of Natural History at Santa Cruz, whom I started to visit regularly.

Later, in 1975, I presented my Biology Diploma work on the ground-beetles of the laurel forest, and that was the start of a more ambitious project in which I intended to answer questions like: How many species do really live in the Canary Islands? Are they all valid species? Where do they live? It took me about 15 years to perform a full taxonomic and faunal revision to aarive at some satisfactory answers. That was my PhD dissertation (cum laude).

I studied some 23.000 specimens from my own collection as well as from several museum collections (Madrid, Oxford, London, Paris, etc.). A total of 232 species live in the Canary Islands, 70% of which are endemic to the archipelago. I revised all the endemic taxa and described 1 tribe, 4 new genera and 29 new species. In parallel, I established 28 new synonyms. The Monografía de los carábidos de las islas Canarias, was published a year later (1992). It has 734 pages and 313 figures. Some chapters deal with aspects like phenology, dispersal power, and parasites, with some emphasis on biogeography and comments on evolution. But at that time, I did not perform phylogenetic analysis. That came later, but not with carabids.

You can access the Monograph here (PDF) or from the section Publication /Scientific, were all other papers dealing with Carabidae are available.

Having grown after the monograph on Carabidae, my interest in understanding how species form and why, islands are the best places to study evolution, and beetles the best candidates. I defined a profile for the ideal group: it has to be monophyletic, with as many species as possible, all endemic and without flying capacity. Winner by a wide margin: the genus Laparocerus Schönherr, 1834 (Curculionidae: Entiminae).

In 1999 I switched from ground-beetles to weevils and designed a project to search for Laparocerus in all of Macaronesia, review the taxonomy, study their ecology and reveal their phylogeny and paths of evolution. If there are any patterns, they should be expressed there.

After 15 years of studying the genus I am still not finished, but getting closer to the end. The Laparocerus are not as rare as previously thought. They are easy to be found by night. I developed efficient techniques for sampling, having collected more than 32.000 specimens, many of them belonging to species previously unknown to science. I prospected the Azores, Madeira and Canary Islands consciously, repeating expeditions to the same island, or to the same place whenever needed. Additionally, I have studied the material kept in all major collections in European museums, plus that sent by colleagues. If you have a recalcitrant species of Laparocerus to be identified, please do not hesitate to write to me.

In the section of Production/Scientific there are several articles about Laparocerus, many describing new species. The number of species level taxa has increased from 123 (when I started) to 215, and there are some more in the pipeline.

I faced the phylogenetic study in collaboration with Dr. Mariano Hernández Ferrer of the University Institute of Tropical Diseases and Public Health of the Canary Islands, and I contracted technical assistance for the laboratory work. I financed the costs of the initial molecular analyses with a grant from the Fundación Biodiversidad (Madrid), which I obtained in 2004-2005. Obviously, I had to update my notions of Genetics and deepen my knowledge of new methods of inferring phylogenies, as well as familiarise myself with a complex arsenal of computer programmes. Later, I had to extend the molecular analyses to more markers and more species, this time with the collaboration of IPNA (CSIC) and hiring more assistants.

In the Production/Scientific section are my articles on Laparocerus, including the descriptions of new species published progressively. The number of taxa at the species level has increased from 123 (when I started) to 265. Finally, the monograph that gathers all the information generated in the last twenty years, I wrote it directly in English and I made the layout taking advantage of the COVID19 pandemic period. It was published in December 2022, in large format,

Catalogue of Canarian Coleoptera

Wollaston Collection

Since Coleoptera Atlantidum of Wollaston (1865), by the end of the XX Century, there was no modern account of beetles from the Canary Islands. In collaboration with Dr. Pedro Oromí, from the University of La Laguna, and with the assistance of many colleagues, we published a new catalogue in 2000 (see PDF), updating to 2061 the total number of species and subspecies, of which 1247 are endemic. We also registered 325 recognized synonyms.

Read more

I keep the Coleoptera database alive, and Dr. Oromí is in charge of Entomology in the Banco de datos de Biodiversidad de Canarias (BIOTA), supported by the Canarian Government. Should you have any amendment or contribution to add to the Canarian Coleoptera Database, please feel welcome to contact one of us:

When I find a suitable database and some time, it is my intention to include the Canarian Catalogue in this website for online access. For the moment, I keep it in my desktop running on Procite, and oldie, but performing well.

Canarian Entomological Bibliography

Books on Coleoptera by T. Vernon Wollaston

One of my main goals at IBCER was to find all the entomological bibliography related to the Canary Islands. That was in the times of cards, typing machines, carbon copies, ordinary letters and smailmail to contact other colleagues, visiting libraries in person, etcetera; something unimaginable for the Internet generation. In 1976 I finished a preliminary list, and in 1987 the book A Bibliography of the Canary Island Entomology was published, which was a milestone.

Read more

Since then, I have been registering all new publications as best as I can. They have grown exponentially, but the new facilities with computers and Internet is a great help. As with the Catalogue of Coleoptera, I hope to be able to transfer my database to an online application within this web-site (probably RefBASE). It is a question of finding the time. Meanwhile, if you need information about any publication, please write to me. In some cases, I can also provide a PDF or scan the original. My library has some 12.000 registers (EndNote X6), and about 4800 are related with Arthropods.

Identification keys to Canarian Coleoptera

Identificating beetles 1

After finishing the monograph on Laparocerus in 2022, I thought about the best use I could make out of me and the time available after my retirement. As taxonomists are becoming something of an endangered species, I decided to apply myself to the elaboration of keys for the identification of the Canarian Coleoptera. We are talking about 2500 species distributed in 71 families. Except for carabids and curculionids, nothing similar exists. Only a few dispersed genus keys and rarely in Spanish

Read more

My plan is to start with the families with the fewest species and in alphabetical order. The project is a long-term one –I hope to be able to finish it– and I have discarded waiting for its conclusion and formal publication. The idea is to post the keys to each family on this website (see attached link) as I finish them, so that anyone interested can download the PDF at will. Note that the upload date is provided in order to follow subsequent updates, if any. The photos and illustrations accompanying the keys are either taken from the Internet (the author is shown in grey lettering) or produced by myself.

Needless to say, I am grateful in advance for any feedback: warnings of errors, absences, suggestions, incorrect images, etc. Please write directly to antonio.machado@telefonica.net.

Collecting insects or any other biological material in the Canary Islands has become complicated. Spanish biodiversity conservation legislation, and particularly the permitting process for collecting samples, was designed for large mammals and birds, not insects. Many colleagues simply write to me, but I do not issue permits. The most I did at the time was to include on this website a help guide with forms and addresses for preparing such applications.  But I have cancelled it, as things have become more and more complicated as the different island councils do not follow the same criteria.

At present, the application for collecting species must be submitted electronically and in Spanish to the Biodiversity Service of the Canary Islands Government. In addition, permission must then be obtained from each island council –also in Spanish and electronically (not always)– to collect in protected areas, if that is the case, and the councils do not make a decision without first receiving the resolution from the Canary Islands Government. Fortunately, the latter usually sends a copy of its resolution to the island council (Cabildo insular) concerned. I am afraid that a bureaucratic maquis has been created, to be overcome with patience, perseverance, and the necessary foresight. Good luck!
