Abstract

The book catalogues distribution data on occurrence of families of Tenebrionoidea. Having reviewed available distribution data, we consider 84 species to be present in Poland: Aderidae (7 species), Melandryidae (27), Oedemeridae (22), Prostomidae (1), Pythidae (3), Ripiphoridae (3), Scraptiidae (15) and Tetratomidae (6). 27 species were considered doubtful due to misindentifications or a long-term lack of new occurrences, including Mycteridae. Data on distribution of the confirmed taxa cover source references, localities, UTM 10×10 km grid coordinates, dates and collections that hold specimen, accompanied by distribution maps generalized to the UTM grid. A separate chapter gives an overview of Palaearctic distribution of all the discussed taxa, including subspecies when applicable. Detailed taxonomic checklist of the covered groups including synonymy is also provided. The distribution catalogue part is followed by the meta-analysis built upon a database covering all the presented information. A number of analytical and generalization techniques was used, giving synthetic views on research intensity and some other parameters at a species and family level. The publication follows the former volume of the Coleoptera Poloniae series, extending traditional faunistics by links to the database that is available online through the Biodiversity Map and Coleoptera Poloniae websites, served by the Polish Biodiversity Information Network (KSIB).

Abstract

The book provides a summary of data on occurrence of Tenebrionidae and Boridae in Poland.
The presence of 73 species of Tenebrionidae and 1 Boridae species is confirmed, while 28
tenebrionid taxa are considered doubtful or needing confirmation, although reported in the past.
Data on distribution of the confirmed taxa cover localities, UTM 10x10 km grid coordinates,
dates, collections that hold specimen, and source references, accompanied by distribution maps
generalized to the UTM grid. A separate chapter gives an overview of Palaearctic distribution of all
the discussed taxa, including subspecies when applicable. Detailed taxonomic checklist of the group
including synonymy is also provided separately. The distribution catalogue part is followed by the
meta-analysis built upon a database covering all the presented information. A number of analytical
and generalization techniques was used, giving synthetic views on research intensity and number of
species known in different parts of the country, commonness-abundance relationship and relative
species richness fives a new quality to traditional faunistics, being paired with the database that will
be available online through the Biodiversity Map and Coleoptera Poloniae websites, served by the
Polish Biodiversity Information Network (KSIB).
