NOTES ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF, AND RANGE EXTENSION FOR, ACUPALPUS MERIDIANUS (LINNÉ) (COLEOPTERA: CARABIDAE)

  • Darren A. Pollock (a1)

Extract

In May 1990, the carabid beetle fauna of an urban Edmonton, Alta., garden was sampled by hand, and specimens were identified using Lindroth (1968). The most common carabid in the garden was Acupalpus meridianus (L.). Other carabid species found in the same small area included: Carabus nemoralis Müller, Clivina fossor (L.), Amara familiaris (Duftschmid), A. apricaria (Paykull), Agonum placidum (Say), and Pterostichus melanarius (Illiger). All of these except A. placidum are introductions from Europe (Spence and Spence 1988).
