An annotated bibliography (1977-1996) of the Chinese beetle fauna is presented. A total of 1,672 references is listed alphabetically. Among these, 668 were contributed by Chinese authors, 991 by non-Chinese authors and 12 jointly by Chinese and non-Chinese authors. Contents of the papers (e.g. taxa described in the paper) are indicated in parenthesis for each paper when the information is available to me. An index to family-group taxa is provided to facilitate the retrieval of these references by taxonomists who are interested in different families of beetles. 

Key words: Beetles, Coleoptera, China, fauna, bibliography, index
