Nearly 60 dermestid species have been found in the Himalayan Region (Hava 2009), representing 9 genera, such as Dermestes Linnaeus, Thorictodes Reitter, Attagenus Latreille, Anthrenus Geoffroy, Evorinea Beal, Orphinus Motschulsky, Ctesias Stephens, and Trogoderma Dejean.
On the genus Anthrenus Geoffroy, 1762 (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) from Nepal and North India with a description of a new species.
Among the topics are lessons on circadian clocks from fish, an update of the morning and evening oscillator model in Drosophila, dynamic neuronal network organization of the circadian clock and possible deterioration in disease, circadian modulation of sleep in rodents, local aspects of sleep revealed by observations from intra-cerebral recordings in humans, feedback actions of locomotor activity to the circadian clock, managing neurobehavior capability when social expediency trumps biological imperatives, the evolutionary physiology of photoperiodism in vertebrates, and circannual rhythm in the varied carpet beetle Anthrenus

Recent papers with the descriptions of a new species are infrequent and were provided by Mroczkowski (1959--description of Anthrenus lindbergi; 1961b--descriptions of 2 species of Ctesias spp.
The subfamilies of Attageninae with genus Attagenus (13 species) and Megatominae with genus Anthrenus (14 species) are the most numerous in comparison to the other subfamilies (see the list below).
