He was expert at writing regional monographs wherein he synthesized a comprehensive amount of knowledge about scarabs. He published Faune des Coléoptères Scarabaeoidea de l'Europe Occidentale in 1977, Faune de France: Lucanoidea et Scarabaeoidea in 1982 (with Renaud Paulian), Coléoptères Scarabaeoidea du Nord de l'Afrique in 1985, and Coléoptères Scarabaeoidea d'Europe in 1992.
