The Calosoma species (Coleoptera, Carabidae) of the Galapagos archipelago II. Discriminant analyses and species identification key


, : The Calosoma species (Coleoptera, Carabidae) of the Galapagos archipelago II. Discriminant analyses and species identification key. Bulletin de l' Institut Royal des Sciences Naturelles de Belgique, Entomologie ( 60): 55-68

Continuous and meristic morphometric data on the species of the genus Calosoma from the Galapagos Islands are analysed. Multiple canonical discriminant functions, derived in a stepwise procedure, for male genitalia size measurements and for a large number of external body measurements classified specimens accurately into their a-priori species. A more limited number of external morphometric characters was identified as pertinent discriminators between species.
