Abstract

A revision of the genus Andraegoidus Aurivillius, 1920, based on a study of external morphology and terminalia, is presented. The genus and species are redescribed; two subspecies are elevated to species level: Andraegoidus fabricii (Dupont, 1838) status nov. and A. richteri (Bruch, 1908) status nov.; synonyms are proposed: Trachyderes fulvipennis (Dupont, 1838) = A. fabricii and T. zonatus (Dalman, 1823) = A. rufipes (Fabricius, 1787). The genus is composed of 10 species and no subspecies: A. cruentatus (Dupont, 1838), A. distinguendus Hüdepohl, 1985, A. homoplatus (Dupont, 1838), A. fabricii (Dupont, 1838), A. lacordairei (Dupont, 1838), A. laticollis Tippmann, 1953, A. richteri (Bruch, 1902), A. rufipes (Fabricius, 1878), A. translucidus Botero & Monné, 2011 and A. variegatus (Perty, 1832). A key to species for each gender as well as photographs and geographical distribution maps are provided.

... The supertribe Trachyderoinia was erected to include the taxa in which females possess purpuriceniform terminalia, characterized by a short ovipositor (shorter than or equal to sternites VI and VII together), sternite VIII with a brush of differentiated setae and tergite VIII bi-or trilobate; in males sternite VIII is wider than long with a very short or absent apodeme (Fragoso et al. 1987). This Trachyderoinia terminalia pattern has been described in many works: Moura and Galileo (1992), Monné and Napp (2000), Monné (2005b), Monné and Napp (2005), Botero and Monné (2012), and Quintino and Monné (2014). ...

Estimates of the total number of species in existence are based, in part, upon assumptions about the host specificity of tropical insects. These estimates are difficult to evaluate because there is so little data available describing the host-plant affiliations of tropical insects. Over a three-year period, 690 trees in the Sinnamary River Basin of French Guiana were felled and investigated for their associated cerambycid fauna. These trees (belonging to approximately 200 species representing 38 plant families) ultimately gave rise to 334 species of cerambycids. One-quarter of these beetle species had not yet been described, and hundreds of previously unknown host-plant associations were documented. These data are presented in a table which also includes the results of additional rearing experiments in French Guiana, as well as selected literature references. Organized by host-tree family, the table facilitates the circumscription of beetle guilds occurring on related hosts. Abundantly represented plant families typically gave rise to faunas including numerous taxonomically unrelated beetles. The beetle guilds associated with different plant families had very different ratios of specialist:generalist species. The majority of the specialists successfully reproduced in related tree species belonging to a particular plant family; only a few cerambycid species appear to depend exclusively on a single host. These data contribute to an understanding of host specificity and host fidelity in tropical insects.

Pheromone glands were discovered in the prothorax of male Hylotrupes bajulus (L.) (Coleoptera : Cerambycidae). These exocrine glands were investigated by SEM and light microscopy. Almost the entire prothorax is internally lined with a glandular matrix composed of numerous heap-like complex glands. Each gland is divided into several subunits (“pore field units”), which in turn are composed of a varying number of glandular units. The glandular unit comprises a distal voluminous glandular cell, a medial (intercalary) canal cell I, and a minute canal cell II near the cuticle. The spindle-like, basally constricted receiving canal of the gland cell leads into the long, non-porous conducting canal, which, by a single cuticle canal, opens in an external pore field, an aggregate of orifices of other such cuticle canals. In varying numbers, these randomly arranged pore fields are located in superficial pits that are distributed over nearly the entire prothorax. The structure of these male sex pheromone glands is discussed in comparison with other known glands in species of Coleoptera characterized by multicellular aggregations and by pore plates.

Males of five species of three tribes in the longhorned beetle subfamily Cerambycinae produce volatile pheromones that share a structural motif (hydroxyl or carbonyl groups at carbons two and three in straight-chains of six, eight, or ten carbons). Pheromone gland pores are present on the prothoraces of males, but are absent in females, suggesting that male-specific gland pores could provide a convenient morphological indication that a species uses volatile pheromones. In this article, we assess the taxonomic distribution of gland pores within the Cerambycinae by examining males and females of 65 species in 24 tribes using scanning electron microscopy. Gland pores were present in males and absent in females of 49 species, but absent in both sexes of the remaining 16 species. Pores were confined to indentations in the cuticle. Among the species that had male-specific gland pores were four species already known to produce volatile compounds consistent with the structural motif. These findings support the initial assumption that gland pores are associated with the production of pheromones by males. There were apparently no taxonomic patterns in the presence of gland pores. These findings suggest that volatile pheromones play an important role in reproduction for many species of the Cerambycinae, and that the trait is evolutionarily labile.

A catalogue of the subfamiliy Cerambycinae (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) of the Neotropical Region is presented. Fifty-seven tribes, 10 subtribes, 716 genera, 3789 species and 68 subspecies are listed in alphabetical order. Under each family-group name bibliographical references are given and under each species-group name, data on the type locality, the acronym of the institution where the type is deposited, the geographical distribution and detailed bibliographical references are provided. One new combination is presented: Plocaederus yucatecus (Chemsak & Noguera, 1997), new comb., from Brasilianus.

A generic-level phylogenetic analysis of the tribe Torneutini Thomson, 1860 is presented based on 72 morphological characters for 39 terminal taxa of which, 31 are representatives of the Torneutini genera. The outgroup includes eight representatives from other tribes. A hypothesis of monophyly for supertribe Trachyderoinia Dupont, 1836 (sensu Fragoso, Monné and Seabra 1987) is presented for the first time. Torneutini, as currently recognized, was shown to be paraphyletic. In order to eliminate this condition, Bothriospilina Lane, 1950 is raised herein to tribe level. Torneutini, as herein defined, comprises the following genera in parenthetic notation: (Macellidiopygus (Psygmatocerus (Gigantotrichoderes (Spathopygus + Coccoderus) (Gnathopraxithea + Praxithea) (Torneutopsis (Torneucerus + Diploschema) (Torneutes (Dragomiris + Dragoneutes) (Thaumasus + Xenambyx)))))). The maintenance of Macellidiopygus in Torneutini needs further investigating. Bothriospilini Lane, 1950, new status, includes in parenthetic notation: ((Ranqueles + Scapanopygus) (Taygayba (Delemodacrys (Bothriosplla + Timbaraba))) (Gnaphalodes (Knulliana + Chlorida)))). The position of Chrotoma is still no certain, and it is tentatively included in Bothriospilini. The results indicate that Bothriospilini is closely related to Trachyderini, Pyrestini and Basipterini. A phylogenetic classification of Trachyderoinia at tribe level, and of Torneutini and Bothriospilini at genus level, is proposed.
