Abstract Silphidae in Mexico, as in other countries, are a broadly studied family of Coleoptera. However, their geographical distribution in this country has been poorly analyzed. The aim of this study was to perform a track analysis of the Mexican species of Silphidae to discuss their distribution patterns. We used bibliographic and new distribution data of 11 Mexican species of Silphidae to construct their individual tracks in maps of biogeographic provinces. The superposition of these… Expand
