Beetles make up the largest group of terrestrial invertebrates on Lord Howe Island, with 515 species recorded. These beetles show closer affinities with beetles from Norfolk Island, New Caledonia and New Zealand than Australia. Approximately two thirds of the Lord Howe Island beetle species are endemic, found nowhere else in the world.
