This paper reviews the genera Xylothrips Lesne, 1901 and Calophagus Lesne, 1902, and their species, and proposes that Calophagus should be reinstated as a full genus from a subgenus of Xylothrips (contra Borowski & Węgrzynowicz 2019). The genera and their included species are diagnosed and redescribed, and a summary of information on the distributi...

A new genus and species of bostrichid beetle, Octomeristes gen. nov. and Octomeristes pusillus gen. et sp. nov., in the tribe Xyloperthini is described from litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) wood in Thailand. The genus is compared to Octodesmus Lesne, 1901, the only other xyloperthine genus with eight-segmented antennae, and to the xyloperthine gener...

The genus Diapus Chapuis was erected (Chapuis 1865) for four species of pinhole borer (Curculionidae: Platypodinae) from the Oriental region and New Guinea. It was distinguished from other platypodine genera primarily by the widely separated procoxae (Chapuis 1865). Hopkins (1914) designated Diapus quadrispinatus Chapuis, 1865 as the type species o...

The present state of knowledge of the scolytine ambrosia beetles of Thailand is summarised to provide a basis for future studies of the fauna and its economic importance in forestry, timber production and crop tree plantations. A checklist of the fauna is provided with information on local and world distribution, host trees, biology and taxonomy. S...
Article
Full-text available
A new species of Xyloprista LESNE 1901, X. longiscapus sp. n. is described from Jamaica. It can be recognized by the prolongation of the antennal scape well beyond the insertion of the remaining antennomeres, the glabrous elytra, and very strongly, coarsely punctured elytral declivity. A key is given to all five species of Xyloprista.

The state of knowledge of Taiwanese bark and ambrosia beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) is summarised to serve as a baseline for future studies of the fauna, with a checklist including information on distribution, host trees, biology and taxonomy. Six faunal elements based on geographical distribution are discussed in relation to thei...

Thirty-three species belonging to the bostrichid subfamilies Lyctinae and Dinoderinae were examined by low vacuum ESEM without sputtering. Eight types of microsculpture, five types of hair insertion, and 14 types of hair were found on the elytral disc and declivity. The different types of microstructure are described and illustrated with ESEM photo...

An illustrated key to seventeen species of Bostrichidae recorded in association with rubberwood in Thailand is provided. A checklist is given of nine species infesting rubberwood sawn timber in sawmills in southern Thailand, with information on distribution, host trees and biology. Three species are recorded for the first time from Thailand: Cephal...

We review the scattered published literature in many languages on the b iology of the b eetles family Bostrichidae, and discuss it according to the type of breeding place (stored cereals, dead wood and timber, living tree) in which the bostrichids become pests. We summarize the available data in three life history tables.

Project
The IBNP (Museo Nacional de Historia Natural del Paraguay, San Lorenzo, Paraguay) has an ongoing all-taxa biodiversity inventory project. The publications herein are our contributions based on specimens collected during a 3-week field endeavor in 2019 (and specimens collected by colleagues on other trips). Subsequent field work has been delayed due to COVID. Next trip will be in 2023.
