The Revista Brasileira de Entomologia (RBE) is a quarterly publication of the Sociedade Brasileira de Entomologia (Brazilian Society of Entomology). It publishes original peer-reviewed papers in entomology, focusing on systematics, diversity, and evolution of insects. The RBE also maintains sections for short communications, book reviews, and announcements of general interest. Points of view or reviews may be published, by invitation of the Editorial Board. Due to current editorial policies, priority is given to papers with an innovative approach and that represents a more solid contribution to knowledge of focused groups, including a more detailed discussion of thematic fields, under a comparative approach.
