Ecology and biogeography of the beetles associated with twelve species of Scolytidae in the southern California



Ecology and biogeography of the beetles associated with twelve species of Scolytidae in the southern California



Bulletin de la Societe Entomologique de France 98(5): 409-424



In this paper we describe, for the south California (around Palm Desert) the complexes of Coleoptera associated with 12 species of Scolytidae. The host trees of these Scolytidae are Conifers (Pinus sp. and Abies sp.) and a broadleaved tree, Cercidium floridum. These complexes of Coleoptera, with 103 species, have a high biodiversity. Small species which are obligatory or facultative predators, are numerically dominant (table IV) except in the cases of beetles associated with the Scolytidae Hylocurus, Chaetophloeus, Scolytus and Hylurgops. For the small species belonging to the families Colydiidae, Tenebrionidae, Trogossitidae and Histeridae some biological data are provided. Comparisons between the beetle complexes associated with Scolytidae in different localities from Europe and America allow some hypotheses on the variations of the biodiversity, of the species composition and of the abundance according to the geographical distribution. The biodiversity and abundance increase from north to south whereas the species composition changes, the Colydiidae, Tenebrionidae and Trogossitidae becoming more numerous.
