Bostrichidae and Anobiidae (Coleoptera)

Bostrichidae and Anobiidae (Coleoptera)

The"Bosco della Fontana" nature reserve (Lombardy, Mantua province) is largely covered by a remnant oak-hornbeam forest (Querco-Carpineturn boreoitalicum) of the Po plain. A total of 590 specimens were studied from this reserve, belonging to 4 species of Bostrichidae and 15 species of Anobiidae (including 3 Ptininae). Most specimens were collected using window flight traps and trunk window traps placed in the mesophilous forest stands with Quercus robur. These traps allowed to ascertain the activity density of 14 species, and the overall dominance of Priobium carpini and Oligomerus brunneus.The autochthonous species Quercus robur was the tree on which the highest activity density of bostrichoids was found, followed by Q. rubra and Platanus hybrida, both allochthonous. Altogether, window flight traps collected more specimens than trunk window traps. From a faunistic point of view, the presence of Lichenophanes varius (Bostrichidae), Dorcatoma chrysomelina and Mesothes ferrugineus (Anobiidae) is noteworthy. Anobium hederae, A. inexspectatum (Anobiidae Anobiinae) and Ptinus calcaratus (Anobiidae Ptininae) are firstly recorded for Lombardy. Nine species were collected also with Malaise and aerial traps placed in the lowest part of the canopy of oak trees. Moreover, the rearing of a larva of Ptinus sexpunctatus (Anobiidae Ptininae) from a Meloid beetle preserved in an entomological box is commented on. For each species chorotype, Italian regional distribution and ecology are provided.
