Most of the references cited below contain original descriptions of species having type localities within GSMNP or references to species occurring in the park that are rare or otherwise unusual. References to source data used in creating the GSMNP beetle checklist are also included. The list is far from exhaustive and suggestions for additional citations are welcome. Recently submitted manuscripts from our lab are included and citations will be updated as the move through the publication process.
