Works

Horn & Schenkling[1] give a list of 63 entomological works

One of his main works was the Histoire naturelle et iconographie des insectes coléoptères (1837–1841), volumes 2-4; Castelnau writing the first volume only. This has become one of the rarest entomological books.

Another well-known magistral work is the Monographie des Cétoines et genres voisins, published with Achille Rémy Percheron.
