Within beetles, one can argue, the ground beetles, Carabidae must be one of His favourites, because among beetles, this family is one of the most speciose ones. It should beFile Size: 7MB.

Fruška Gora (Northern Serbia) over the period The investigations were performed at 26 localities. During the study altogether specimens were captured. These beetles were collected mostly by hand, but some individuals were caught by pitfall and light traps as well. In total 64 species classified into 33 Cited by: 2.

In addition to the diamphidia beetles above, carabid beetles of the African genus Lebistina have also been reported as an arrow poison (Mebs et al., ; Neuwinger, ). Apparently, a juvenile stage is extracted from pupation cocoons and macerated and applied to arrows.

Darlington’s monumental work “The Carabid Beetles of New Guinea” which was printed in four parts between andand on the material which I identified, or mentioned and described in a number of descriptive and revisionary papers. Ground beetles live in almost every terrestrial habitat on earth.

Worldwide, ab species in the family Carabidae have been described and named. In North America, the ground beetles number well over 2,   With the increasing numbers of research workers and groups of investigators devoting themselves to the ecology of carabids I felt that the time had come to take stock of the existing knowledge in this field and to endeavour to weld my personal results and those of other workers into a comprehensive picture.

It was with these aims in mind that the following study 5/5(1). The carabid beetles of New Guinea, part IV: General considerations; analysis and history of fauna; taxonomic supplement. The National Academies Press. doi: / Show this book's table of contents.

Beetles from the family Carabidae, commonly known as ground beetles are a large, cosmopolitan group, with more t species worldwide, Carabid beetles range in size from mm to mm. Darlington, in a series of papers (–), discussed the origin and composition of the ground-beetle fauna of New Guinea, concluding that nearly two-thirds of that country’s fauna (where origin of groups could be determined) had its origin in the Oriental region; some of the species range as far as India, but very few (16) to Sri by: 6.
