Fanti F., Improta R., 2020. The Lampyridae of the Achille Costa’s (1823-1898) collection, preserved at the Zoological Museum of Naples (Italy). Baltic J. Coleopterol., 20(1): 7- 14.

Specimens of the family Lampyridae (Insecta, Coleoptera) from the Achille Costa collection at the Zoological Museum of Naples (Italy) are reviewed to reveal their cultural and scientific significance. This collection is especially important to Lampyridae experts, given the age, historical significance and origin of the specimens (especially those from Southern Italy). The collection is also noted for containing some specimens of the typical series of Lampyris brutia A. Costa, 1881.
