Return to Texas Entomology - Compiled by Mike Quinn


Charles Schaeffer (1860-1934) was an important coleopterist who was among the first to make extensive collections in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. The following biological sketch of Schaeffer was extracted from Burke (2004).

Schaeffer's collections there were so extensive that they can almost be considered as a turn-of-the-20th Century baseline for the Lower Rio Grande beetle fauna.

His favorite collecting site in the Lower Rio Grande Valley was the Esperanza Ranch [which is now surrounded by the City of Brownsville, TX]. Many species of Coleoptera, as well as members of other orders, have the Esperanza Ranch site as their type locality.

Taxa of many families of Coleoptera received the attention of Schaeffer. His favorite were the Chrysomelidae, but he also described new genera and species in the Cerambycidae, the Buprestidae, and over 20 other families. He was a true beetle generalist.

Schaeffer had a special attraction for anthribids. In his 1906 paper on new species of this group he stated: "The family is exceedingly well represented in Brownsville, Texas, if we take in consideration the small number of species within the limits of the United States. From this interesting semitropical region twenty-one species are known, of which seven are new.

Schaeffer described 21 species of anthribids, 19 of which are still considered valid. According to Valentine (1998), there are 88 described species of Anthribidae in the Nearctic region. Schaeffer described about 22% of these, a significant contribution to the descriptive taxonomy of the family.

As a descriptive taxonomist, Charles Schaeffer contributed significantly to the knowledge of Coleoptera of the United States. He is truly representative of the often self-taught and dedicated entomologists of his era.
