One hundred forty-eight species of jewel beetles are included in a study of the South Carolina Buprestidae. The list of species includes some questionable records and 37 species reported from nearby states that should be found in South Carolina. Nine species represent new state records.
Keys are provided to distinguish all South Carolina genera and species. For each species, we include at least one photo [IN COLOR!
], any synonyms, a brief description, larval host and adult collection records, overall distribution, South Carolina records, and months that adults have been found in the state. For each valid genus, the type species, any synonyms, and a brief description are provided.
Field Guide to the Jewel Beetles (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) of Northeastern North America.By Paiero et al.
Canadian Food Inspection Agency. 411 pp., 2012
This 411 page field guide (6×9″) covers the 164 jewel beetle species known from northeastern North America, and also includes 2 identification keys to the 23 genera in the region: one a technical key adapted from previously published works, and the other a “field key”, designed for use with a hand lens or digital camera and which uses characters that are more easily observed.
Each species in the guide is fully illustrated with high magnification colour photos of the dorsal & ventral habitus, head and male genitalia (plus additional colour morphs or variations where possible),
