Coastal Staphylinidae (Coleoptera): A worldwide checklist, biogeography and natural history
Kee-Jeong Ahn,Howard Frank
ZooKeys , 2011, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.107.1651
Abstract: We provide a list of the 392 described species of Staphylinidae confined to coastal habitats worldwide. The list is in taxonomic sequence by subfamily, tribe, and genus and includes 91 genera. We provide the page reference of the original description of every species and genus listed and of many synonyms. We note the existence of recent reviews, phylogenies and keys of each of the tribes and genera included. Coastal Staphylinidae contain eight subfamilies: Microsilphinae, Omaliinae, Pselaphinae, Aleocharinae, Oxytelinae, Scydmaeninae, Paederinae, and Staphylininae. By ‘coastal habitats’ we mean habitats existing on the sea coast and subject to inundation or at least splashing by the very highest tides. This includes rocky, boulder, coral, sandy, and muddy seashores, and at least portions of salt-marshes, estuaries, and mangrove swamps. We exclude the sand dune habitat and higher parts of sea-cliffs. The list notes distribution of all the species, first according to the ocean or sea on whose shores it has been recorded, and second by country (and for the larger countries by province or state). Although this distribution is undoubtedly incomplete, it provides a basis for future development of a dedicated database. The ‘Habitats, Habits, and Classificatory Notes’ section is designed to provide ecologists with further taxonomic and ecological information. It includes references to descriptions of the immature stages, behavior of adults and immatures, their food, natural enemies, and habitat. We would have preferred to separate these entities, but current knowledge of ecology is developed in few instances beyond natural history. The Pacific Ocean basin was the origin and contributed to the dispersal of the majority of specialist coastal Staphylinidae at the level of genus. However, at the level of species, species belonging to non-coastal-specialist genera are about as likely to occur on the shores of other oceans as on the shores of the Pacific. This difference is a reflection of the antiquity of coastal genera and species. A complete bibliography, and habitat and habitus photographs of some representative coastal Staphylinidae species are provided.
Contributions to the Knowledge on Staphylinids (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) in Some Riparian Ecosystems of South-Eastern Romania
Melania Stan
Travaux du Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle "Grigore Antipa" , 2011, DOI: 10.2478/v10191-011-0026-y
Abstract: The diversity of the staphylinid fauna is investigated in some riparian ecosystems along rivers of south-east Romania: the Danube, Prut, Siret, Buz u. 94 staphylinid species and subspecies were identified from 23 investigated sites. Thecturota marchii (Dodero) is a new record for the Romanian fauna. Leptobium dimidiatum (Grideli), a rare species, is recorded from a new site, the second record from Romania.

Primeros registros estatales de especies mexicanas de Staphylinidae (Insecta: Coleoptera)
MáRQUEZ, Juan;ASIAIN, Julieta;
Acta zoológica mexicana , 2012,
Abstract: fourteen first state records of 13 species of staphylinidae from hidalgo (seven species), san luis potosí (five species) and guanajuato (two species) are presented. geographical distribution data currently known for each species are included, which were located in the mexican biogeographic provinces. the geographical distribution analysis of each species suggests a correspondence with four distribution patterns, three of them previously recognized in several beetle groups and one more identified in this analysis: mountain mexican component (one species), mesoamerican component (seven species), mountain mexican component-continental nearctic component (three species), and south-eastern mexican (two species). in addition to assign the 13 species to each pattern, other species of staphylinidae and species of several families supporting these patterns were included.
Maritime Provinces Staphylinidae (Coleoptera): Addenda and Corrigenda
Christopher Majka,Jan Klimaszewski
ZooKeys , 2011, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.126.1778
Abstract: Majka and Klimaszewski (2010) surveyed the Aleocharinae fauna of the Maritime Provinces of Canada, reporting that 203 species were known in the region. They also added 16 new provincial records from the region. Inadvertently, they neglected to provide new provincial records of three species that were indicated as occurring in Nova Scotia in Table 1 (pp. 23-33) of their results. This omission is rectified below wherein Gyrophaena modesta Casey, Gyrophaena subnitens Casey, and Placusa vaga Casey are all newly recorded as occurring in Nova Scotia. Klimaszewski et al. (2010, pp. 77) also erroneously reported Tachyporus nitidulus as occurring in Prince Edward Island. There are no records of this adventive Palaearctic species from the province, although it is more widely distributed in Nova Scotia than hitherto reported. Additional records of T. nitidulus are provided of from Nova Scotia.
Diglotta mersa (Haliday) and Halobrecta flavipes Thomson, two new species for the Canadian fauna (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Aleocharinae)
Jan Klimaszewski,Reginald Webster,Volker Assing,Karine Savard
ZooKeys , 2008, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.2.18
Abstract: Diglotta mersa (Haliday) of the Diglottini, a western Palaearctic species, is reported for the first time from the Atlantic coast of North America (Canada, New Brunswick, Dipper Harbour). It was found in fine gravel under small (10-15 cm diameter) rocks in the intertidal zone, approximately 2 m below the mean high tide mark. A description, and images of the external body, median lobe of aedeagus, spermatheca and terminal segments are provided. New distributional and bionomic data for Halobrecta flavipes Thomson, a coastal species of the Athetini Casey, are presented.
A taxonomic revision of the New World genus Oropodes Casey (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Pselaphinae)
Donald Chandler,Michael Caterino
ZooKeys , 2011, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.147.2072
Abstract: The genus Oropodes is characterized and revised with 18 species being treated. Members of this genus are found in temperate forests to desert brush lands from Oregon to Baja California, but are associated primarily with dry forests and shrub lands of California. Keys to males and Females, where known, are provided. Seven species are redescribed: O. arcaps (California), O. dybasi (Oregon), O. ishii (California), O. nuclere (California), O. orbiceps (California), O. rumseyensis (California), O. yollabolly (California). The name Oropodes raffrayi (California) is raised from synonymy and the species is redescribed, stat. n. Ten new species are described: O. aalbui (California), O. bellorum (California), O. casson (California), O. chumash (California), O. esselen (California), O. hardyi (California), O. serrano (California), O. tataviam (California), O. tongva (California), and O. tipai (Baja California, Mexico), stat. n. These species are placed into three species groups: the arcaps-group, the orbiceps-group, and the raffrayi-group. Data for a new record of Euplecterga fideli are given, and a list of the unassociated Oropodes Females with distinctive genitalia is included with their label data.
Levantamento da fauna de Coleoptera que habita a carca?a de Sus scrofa L., em Curitiba, Paraná
Mise, Kleber Makoto;Almeida, Lúcia Massutti de;Moura, Maurício Osvaldo;
Revista Brasileira de Entomologia , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0085-56262007000300014
Abstract: this paper sought to assess the coleoptera fauna associated with carcasses of sus scrofa l., 1758, which is usually used as model in forensic entomology. the addition and sequential substitution of insect species could be used to estimate the post mortem interval (pmi). the present study took place in centro politécnico (ufpr), between september 2005 to september 2006. a pig weighting 15 kg was sacrificed each season and put inside a cage. sampling is made daily in a tray placed below the carcass and in a shannon modified trap, and each 14 days in five pit-fall traps. 4,360 beetles were collected, belonging to 112 species of 26 families, 12 were considered of forensic potential. the active collecting made in the tray was responsible for the largest number of beetles (2,023 specimens), followed by the modified shannon trap (2,016 specimens) and by the pit-fall traps (324 specimens). staphylinidae was more abundant in the modified shannon trap, while silphidae was more abundant in pit-fall traps. the main habits found are predator/parasite (55%) and omnivorous (38,05%), with only a few species considered necrophagous (1,31%).

New Staphylinidae (Coleoptera) records with new collection data from New Brunswick, and an addition to the fauna of Quebec, Canada: Aleocharinae
Reginald Webster,Jan Klimaszewski,Jon Sweeney,Ian DeMerchant
ZooKeys , 2012, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.186.2655
Abstract: Thirty-eight species of Aleocharinae are newly reported from New Brunswick, bringing the total number of species known from the province to 216. Thirty-one of these species are newly recorded for the Maritime provinces, and four of them, Phloeopora oregona Casey, Gyrophaena michigana Seevers, Gyrophaena wisconsinica Seevers, and Tomoglossa decora (Casey), are newly recorded for Canada. Tomoglossa constitutes a new generic record for Canada. Collection and habitat data for all these species are presented and discussed. Color habitus, median lobe of the aedeagus, and male tergite and sternite 8 images are presented for the first time for P. oregona, and references to illustrations are provided for all other species included in this paper. A color habitus image is presented for T. decora.
