Welcome to Database MOKUROKU Based on "A Check List of Japanese Insects" !

Japanese page is here

A database called MOKUROKU is based on "A Check List of Japanese Insects" (supervisor: Y. Hirashima, 1989 & 1990) and treats all the insect species or subspecies recorded from Japan. Each record is comprised of 5 items: scientific names of family, genus, species (or subspecies), Japanese name and distributional data. The MOKUROKU was constructed (1st edition, Tadauchi et. al., 1990) in the Computer Center of Kyushu University and the 2nd version (Tadauchi & Inoue, 1999) is currently open to the public. A user can collect information partly on new species and new recorded species from Japan by using the previous database KONCHUR.

The MOKUROKU is managed by a text database management system SIGMA.

MOKUROKU(2nd edition) is partly supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research(B) (Head Investigator: Osamu Tadauchi) from the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture, Japan.

The use of data in this database is free of charge if the objective is academic study or educational purposes.
