Graptodytes exsanguis (Bedel, 1925) n. stat., a newly recognised species of diving beetle from North Africa, Corsica and Sardinia, with notes on other taxa of the varius/ignotus complex (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae)
Summary A species of the genus Graptodytes Seidlitz, 1887 (varius/ignotus complex) is newly recognised and described based on recently sampled specimens from Corsica and Sardinia, and material inExpand
Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography and population history of Meladema diving beetles on the Atlantic Islands and in the Mediterranean basin (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae)
A molecular clock approach reveals that speciation within the genus occurred in the Early Pleistocene, indicating that the Atlantic Island endemics are not Tertiary relict taxa as had been proposed previously. Expand
Thermal niche evolution and geographical range expansion in a species complex of western Mediterranean diving beetles
The A. brunneus complex diversified in the late Pleistocene, most likely in south Iberia after colonization from Morocco, and points to the often neglected role of North Africa as a source of European biodiversity. Expand
Adephagan and hydrophiloid water beetles (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae, Haliplidae, Noteridae, Dytiscidae, Helophoridae, and Hydrophilidae) of the Bílé Karpaty Protected Landscape Area and Biosphere Reserve (Czech Republic).
Results show that the Bile Karpaty Protected Landscape Area harbours a rich water beetle fauna and may provide refuges for rare and endangered species. Expand
A new species of the Hydroporus planus-group from northern Morocco with close affinities to H. analis Aubé, 1838 and H. decipiens Sharp, 1878 (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae)
Summary Hydroporus bertrandi n. sp. is described from the Rif Mountains of northern Morocco. It is a member of the Hydroporus planus-group with close affinities to H. analis Aubé, 1838 and H.Expand
Stictonectes abellani sp. n. (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae) from the Iberian Peninsula, with notes on the phylogeny, ecology and distribution of the Iberian species of the genus.
The habitus and the male genitalia of the new species are illustrated, and compared with those of S. optatus, and external morphological differences from other members of the genus are discussed. Expand
First record of the family Hygrobiidae (Coleoptera: Adephaga) from Turkey
Abstract With the discovery of Hygrobia hermanni, the family Hygrobiidae is reported for the first time from Turkey. An illustration of the habitus and line drawings of diagnostic characters areExpand
Taxonomic Revision and Cladistic Analysis of the Genus Peschetius Guignot (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae)
The present analysis supports the monophyly of Peschetius, however, the relations remain partly unclear. Expand
Hydrovatus Motschulsky with Description of a New Species (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae) from Southern India
A new species Hydrovatus vaziranii n.sp. in the genus Hydrovatus Motschulsky (Dytiscidae: Hydroporinae) is described from south India. A key is provided to the seven species of the genus HydrovatusExpand
Nestedness-patterns of Odonata assemblages in artificial and natural aquatic habitats reveal the potential role of drinking troughs for aquatic insect conservation
Nestedness patterns including both artificial and natural habitat may represent evidence of such habitats’ importance in community assembly and conservation of animals inhabiting those sites. OdonataExpand
