Mark Robinson was an outstanding field naturalist and amateur entomologist although by profession he was a senior engineer (jet engines) at Westinghouse Electric Company in Pennsylvania. From an early age Robinson concentrated on collecting and studying beetles, and he finally concentrated on scarabs. He discovered and described 72 new species of Scarabaeidae, mostly from the United States. His large collection went to the U.S. National Museum in Washington, D. C.
