Insecta Mundi is a journal primarily devoted to insect systematics, but articles can be published on any non-marine arthropod taxon. Manuscripts considered for publication include, but are not limited to, descriptions of new taxa, informal taxonomic notes, bibliographies, checklists, catalogs, and reviews. For papers about new insect species, Insecta Mundi provides authors early publication so that the species may be included in other books and catalogs.

This archive of older issues is presented here through the courtesy and cooperation of the Insecta Mundi editorial board. DjVU files were retrieved from the Insecta Mundi Online page at, converted to PDF format, text-recognized with OCR, and split into individual articles, which are posted here with abstracts under their year of publication.
