P. Kuijten was an authority on the Old World Hybosoridae, and he published many papers on this family.  He also revised the primarily Old World genus Parastasia (Rutelinae). He retired from the Division of Systematics and Evolutionary Biology at the Department of Population Biology at the Rijksuniversiteit in Leiden in the Netherlands in the late 1990s, but he continued to curate and identify scarabaeoids until his passing in 2009.
