The Coleopterists Bulletin 73(2): 433 - 439, 2019
ABSTRACT: Adults of eight species of beetles in the subfamily Elaphrinae (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Elaphrinae) were collected in the Far North of Ontario and on Akimiski Island, Nunavut, Canada. We found first records for Nunavut (territory) of seven species: Blethisa julii LeConte, 1863; Blethisa quadricollis Haldeman, 1847; Diacheila arctica (Gyllenhal, 1810); Elaphrus americanus Dejean, 1831; Elaphrus lecontei Crotch, 1876; Elaphrus clairvillei Kirby, 1837; and Elaphrus fuliginosus Say, 1830. Our record of one species, Elaphrus californicus Mannerheim, 1843, is a new range record for the province of Ontario.
Eight Ground Beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) New to Virginia, with Additional Records for West Virginia and MarylandBy Curt W. Harden
Banisteria No. 50: 15-20, 2018
Abstract: Eight ground beetle species, including Trechus quadristriatus (Schrank), Elaphropus dolosus (LeConte), Brachinus americanus (LeConte), Pterostichus tenuis (Casey), Cyclotrachelus convivus (LeConte), Agonum mutatum (Gemminger & Harold), Somotrichus unifasciatus (Dejean), and Cymindis elegans LeConte, are reported from Virginia for the first time, and one species, Clinidium apertum allegheniensis Bell & Bell, is removed from the state list. Two species are reported as new state records for Maryland ([I]Harpalus katia
Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera Volume 1 (2nd edition)By Löbl, I. & Löbl, D.
Brill , 2018
This second updated edition of the first volume (1st ed. published 2003) is a complete catalogue of suborders Archostemata, Myxophaga, and Adephaga of the Palaearctic faunal region. The latter suborder is the largest of the three which incorporates what western authors designate Geadephaga = Caraboidea = ground beetles sensu lato. This massive 1477-page work contains information on 33,914 taxa (together with synonyms), and increases the number of included species and other taxa by almost 5,000. In addition, thousands of species have their distributional data completed, and their ranks, systematic positions and nomenclature corrected. Almost two hundred new acts fix systematics and nomenclature, and numerous problems are discussed. Even such well known genera as Calosoma and Carabus, or tribes as Bembidiini and Panagaeini, are completely reorganized compared to the previously published catalogues. Thus, the work is a scaffold for biotic surveys, ecological studies, nature conservation, and it provides background checks on Palaearctic species introduced into other faunal regions. Subsequent volumes in this series cover the remaining Coleoptera groups.
Additions to the knowledge of Nevada carabid beetles (Carabidae) & preliminary list of carabids from the Great Basin National PkBy Will, K., Madan, R., Hsu, H.
Additions to the list of Carabidae known for Nevada, USA and carabid beetles found in the Great Basin National Park, NV are reported with notes on ecology and identification resources. For 79 species of carabids, the authors present 57 new state records, two state records previously reported in online resources [BugGuide], one confirmation of a previous questionable record for the state, and report 22 records for the Great Basin National Park that includes three new state records.
