  12. VITALI F., 2007f - Notes and taxonomic corrections to the Beiträge von Insektenfauna von Jamaika, Cerambycidae (Coleoptera Cerambycidae) -Entomapeiron (N. S.) 1 (2): 37-59.
    New taxonomic considerations and corrections are added to the Beiträge von Insektenfauna von Jamaika, Cerambycidae (Vitali & Rezbanyai-Reser, 2003). Four new species of cerambycids from Jamaica (West-Indies) are here described: Stizocera jamaicensis n. sp. (Cerambycinae Elaphidiini), Eburia (Eleutho) consobrinoides n. sp. (Cerambycinae Eburiini), Ataxia crassa n. sp. (Lamiinae Pteropliini), Estoloides (s. str.) medioplagiata nov. sp. (Lamiinae Desmiphorini). Curtomerus flavus (Fabricius, 1775) is transferred from the tribe Elaphidiini to Callidiopini. Eleutho Thomson, 1864 (Cerambycinae Eburiini) is here rehabilitated and considered as a subgenus (n. status) of Eburia. According to the ICZN Art. 15, the tribe Prinobiini Vives, 2000 is considered as an inval. nom. Elaphidion transversum White, 1853 is transferred to the genus Anelaphus, as follows: Anelaphus transversus (White, 1853) n. comb. Elaphidion jamaicense Fisher, 1932 rest. status is removed from the synonymy with Elaphidion tuberculicolle Fisher, 1932. According to the ICZN Art. 23.9., the names Cordylomera spinicornis (F.), Philematium festivum (F.), Lagocheirus tuberculatus (F.) and Lagocheirus undatus (Voet) must be conserved. Consequently, Lagocheirus obsoletus dezayasi Dillon, 1957 becomes Lagocheirus undatus dezayasi (Dillon, 1957) n. comb. Styloleptus biustus fisheri Gilmour 1965 is considered as a younger synonym of Styloleptus scurra var. dorsalis Fisher, 1926 n. syn. Consequently, the presence of Styloleptus scurra (Chevrolat, 1862) in Jamaica must be considered as erroneous (in English with German summary).

  13. VITALI F., 2007g - A new fossil species of Elaphidion Audinet-Serville, 1834 with systematic notes on the Lamiinae from Dominican amber (Coleoptera Cerambycidae) - Entomapeiron (P. S.) 2 (3): 29-39.
    A new fossil species, Elaphidion inclusum n. sp. (Elaphidiini), included in Dominican amber (Early Miocene) is described. The genus Pterolophosoma Vitali (Dominican amber, Early Miocene) is transferred from Lamiinae incertae sedis to the tribe Desmiphorini. The systematic position of Paleohemilophus dominicanus Martins & Galileo (Dominican amber, Early Miocene) is analysed, stating its very close relationship with the North American genus Hemierana Aur. (in English with Spanish summary).

Pachydissus externus Pascoe, 1869 is rehabilitated as valid species inside of the genus Aeolesthes, as follows: Aeolesthes externa (Pascoe, 1869) rest. status, n. comb. This species is also considered as an older synonym of Pachydyssus frenchi n. syn. Aeolesthes? nishikawai Hayashi, 1975 is transferred to the genus Nadezhdiella Plav., as follows: Nadezhdiella nishikawai (Hayashi, 1975) n. comb. (in English with German summary).

Biological, faunistic data and a key to the genus Olethrius are provided. The new genus Samolethrius n. gen. (type genus: Mallodon insularis Fairmaire, 1850) is introduced for Olethrius insularis (Fairmaire, 1850) and O. subnitidus Aurivillius, 1928. Consequently, the following new combinations are introduced: Samolethrius insularis (Fairmaire, 1850) n. comb. and Samolethrius subnitidus (Aurivillius, 1928) n. comb. Hypotheses of the evolution of this genus are provided. Rhaphipodini Lameere, 1912 n. status are considered as a separated tribe including the genera Mecosarthron Buq., Samolethrius n. gen., Olethrius Th., Mallodonopsis Th., Ialyssus Th., Agrianome Th., Rhaphipodus Serv., Rhaesus Motsch., Remphan Waterh. and Paroplites Lam. (in English with French summary).

  22. VITALI F., 2009a - Two new longhorned beetles from Dominican amber (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) - Denisia 69: 223-230
    Two new fossil cerambycid species included in Dominican amber, Elaphidion tocanum n. sp. (Cerambycinae Elaphidiini), from La Toca (Middle Eocene-Early Oligocene) and Kallyntrosternidius bucarensis n. gen. n. sp. (Lamiinae Acanthocinini) from La Bucara (Late Oligocene) are described. Comparisons with extinct and extant Elaphidion-species and extant genera of American Acanthocinini are provided (in English with Lithuanian and German summary).

  23. VITALI F., 2009b - The cerambycids included in Baltic amber: current knowledge status with the description of new taxa (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) - Denisia 69: 231-242
    A synopsis of all cerambycid species recorded from Baltic amber until today is provided and analysed according to the current systematic and paleontological knowledge. Only eight species result to be valid. A further new species, Encyclopidonia punctatissima n. gen. n. sp. (Cerambycidae, Lepturinae, Rhagiini), is described. The new genus Trichosieversia n. gen. for Pseudosieversia europaea Vitali is instituted. The analysis of the cerambycid Baltic fauna strongly implies the presence of temperate environmental conditions and suggests therefore to date the Baltic amber at least to the Early Oligocene (in English with Lithuanian and German summary).

  24. VITALI F., 2009c - About some interesting fossil and sub-fossil Cerambycids of the collection Velten (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) - Lambillionea CIX (3): 352-357.
    A new fossil species, Anelaphus velteni n. sp. (Dominican amber, Miocene), is described and confronted with extant and fossil congeners. Observations about new specimens of Trichosieversia europaea (Vitali) (Baltic amber), Plectromerus tertiarius Vitali (Dominican amber) and Iresioides ferox Th. (Malagasy copal) are added (in English with German summary).

  25. VITALI F. & NAGIRNYI V., 2009 - Nemophas ramosi Schultze, 1920, a forgotten Philippine species (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) - Lambillionea CIX (4): 470-475.
    Nemophas rosenbergii ramosi Schultze, 1920 from Mindanao (Philippines) is removed from the synonymy with N. subcylindricus Aurivillius, 1927 and considered as bona species, as follows: Nemophas ramosi Schultze, 1920 n. stat. Nemophas zonatus Lansberge is recorded for the first time from Flores Island and N. bicinctus Lansberge from Sulawesi. Nemophas rosenbergii Ritsema and N. grayii (Pascoe) are restored at their original spellings. A key to the genus Nemophas Thomson is provided (in English with French summary).

  26. VITALI F., 2010a - Diplocoelus probiphyllus n. sp., the first known fossil False Skin Beetle (Coleoptera: Biphyllidae) - Annales de la Société entomologique de France 46 (1/2): 168-172.
    The first known fossil species of the family Biphyllidae, Diplocoelus probiphyllus n. sp., is described from Baltic amber. This species, which shows intermediate characters between Diplocoelus Guérin-Ménéville and Biphyllus Dejean, also suggests the presence of temperate mixed forests and a climate much cooler than it has been until today hypothesised for Baltic Amber (in English with French summary).

  27. VITALI F., 2010b - Taxonomic and synonymic notes about some Indonesian species of the genus Acalolepta Pascoe, 1858 (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae, Lamiini) - Suara Serangga Papua 4 (4): 94-98.
    Four Indonesian Acalolepta-species (convexa Pascoe, 1866; solata Pascoe, 1866; bolanica Aurivillius, 1926 and solata nodias Kriesche, 1936) are investigated. Acalolepta bolanica (Aurivillius, 1926) is considered as a senior synonym of A. solata nodias (Kriesche, 1936) n. syn. Acalolepta solata (Pascoe, 1866) n. comb. is removed from the synonymy with Acalolepta convexa (Pascoe, 1866) (in English with Indonesian summary).

In particular, Milothris marmorea (Schönherr, 1817) rest. status = M. irrorata (Fabricius, 1801 nec 1787) n. syn. The following species are recorded for the first time: Xixuthrus solomonensis Marazzi & Marazzi and Aeolesthes externa (Pascoe) for Bougainville (Papua New Guinea), Sclethrus macgregori (Schultze) for Masbate (Philippines), Demonax dubius Aurivillius and D. trifasciatus Aurivillius for Mindanao (Philippines) (in English with French summary).
