This important work is the first complete world catalogue of the jewel beetles, the eighth largest beetle family, Buprestidae, and its small North American sister-group, Schizopodidae, since Jan Obenberger's six fascicle (1926-1937) contribution to the Horn & Schenkling Coleopterorum Catalogus.

Published in five volumes (3,125 pages in total), the catalogue presents a full taxonomic history for all taxa, including fossils, along with distribution and type repository data. The catalogue follows the evolving modern classification which, for Buprestidae, employs 6 subfamilies, 47 tribes, 39 non-nominate subtribes, 513 genera and more than 14,700 valid species. Volume 5 includes the first large bibliography on the subject with  more than 8000 citations. It contains two appendix chapters, one listing unknown/nomina dubia/manuscript or catalogue names without modern, valid combinations and the second providing an index to the respective listings of genus-group names in five past jewel beetle catalogues, checklists or monographs. It provides the catalogue index in three parts, one each for family-, genus- and species-group names. It also includes a list of errors from the first four volumes, a list of taxa or taxonomic acts published after Volume 1, and an Epilogue.
