Coleoptera checklist new records Cyclorhipidion Euwallacea Xylosandrus


The present state of knowledge of the bark and ambrosia beetles of Bhutan is summarised as a basis for future studies of the fauna, and its economic importance in forestry, timber production and crop tree plantations. We describe three new species of Scolytinae: Cyclorhipidion druk Smith & Beaver, Euwallacea insolitus Smith & Beaver, and Xylosandrus geduensis Smith & Beaver. Thirty-four species of Scolytinae, and 13 species of Platypodinae are now known to occur in Bhutan, of which 14 species of Scolytinae, including the three new species, and four species of Platypodinae, are recorded for the first time. A checklist of the fauna is provided, with information on local and world distribution, host trees and biology, and taxonomy.
