About this book

Language: English

The book catalogues distribution data on occurrence of families of Tenebrionoidea. Having reviewed available distribution data, the authors consider 84 species to be present in Poland, belonging to the following families: Aderidae (7 species), Melandryidae (27), Oedemeridae (22), Prostomidae (1), Pythidae (3), Ripiphoridae (3), Scraptiidae (15) and Tetratomidae (6). A total of 27 species were considered doubtful due to misindentifications or a long-term lack of new occurrences, including Mycteridae. Data on distribution of the confirmed taxa cover source references, localities, UTM 10 × 10 km grid coordinates, dates and collections that hold specimens, accompanied by distribution maps generalized to the UTM grid. A separate chapter gives an overview of Palaearctic distribution of all the discussed taxa, including subspecies when applicable. Detailed taxonomic checklist of the covered groups including synonymy is also provided. The distribution catalogue part is followed by the meta-analysis built upon a database covering all the presented information. A number of analytical and generalization techniques was used, giving synthetic views on research intensity and some other parameters at a species and family level. The publication follows the previous volume of the Coleoptera Poloniae series, extending traditional faunistics by links to the database that is available online through the Biodiversity Map and Coleoptera Poloniae websites, served by the Polish Biodiversity Information Network.
