Coleoptera Curculionoidea coenoses in Nebrodi Park north-east Sicily Le comunita a Coleoptera Curculionoidea del Parco dei Nebrodi Sicilia nord orientale

Species and abundance structure of the Coleoptera Curculionoidea coenoses in the Nebrodi Mountains (North-East Sicily) have been described. The 140 species collected are ordered in a zoosociological table (Tab. 1), with 17 sites that represent the natural ecosystem types of vegetation: beech forest, oak forest, Calicotome shrubs and open lend. Pitfall-traps results are ordered in Tab. 2. The total annual Activity Density (DAat) has been estimated for each species. Vagility, steeotopic attributes, wing size, chorology, larval and adult biology are also reported. An analysts of the habitat affinity allowed to characterize 7 ecological groups: Mediterranean forest dwellers of humid or subhumid macro-climate (Ferreria marqueti apennina, Solariola vitalei); beech wood dwellers (Otiorhynchus garibaldinus); temperate and Mediterranean forest dwellers (Ruteria hypocrita, Brachysomus hirtus, Aparopion suturidens); Mediterranean oak forest dwellers (Simo grandis, Plinthus squalidus granulipennis); xerothermophilus species in Mediterranean and south European open lands (Brachycerus undatus and B. muriatus); Mediterranean shrub and gangue dwellers (Anisorhynchus barbarus sturmi, Cycloderes canescens, Heteromeira neapolitana etc., Choerocephalus sp. prope siculus, Aubeonymus carinicollis, Trachyphloeus nodipennis, Styphlus transjonicus and S. vidanoi, Hoplopteddius lutosus calaber, Minyops scrobiculatus); wetlands dwellers (Sphenophorus striatopunctatus, Neoglanis salviae). Zoogeographical ad ecological features of the most important species are discussed in detail. Weevils coenoses (forestal, Calicotome shrubs, open land) have ken recognized by means of their characterizing species. From a zoogeographical point of view, the most abundant chorotypes are European species in the widest meaning (39%).
