A REVIEW OF THE NORTH AMERICAN SPECIES OF RHIZOPHAGUS HERBST AND A REVISION OF THE NEARCTIC MEMBERS OF THE SUBGENUS ANOMOPHAGUS REITTER (COLEOPTERA: RHIZOPHAGIDAE)

  • Yves Bousquet (a1)

Abstract

The Nearctic species of the subgenus Anomophagus Reitter of the genus Rhizophagus Herbst are revised. Four taxa are recognized: R. brunneus brunneus Horn 1879, R. brunneus fenyesi Méquignon 1913a, R. pseudobrunneus sp.nov., and R. galbus sp.nov.

For the other Nearctic species of the genus, a diagnosis, a type material section, and distributional notes are provided. Two new taxa are described, R. minutus rotundicollis and R. pusillus. Seven specific names are treated as new junior synonyms, namely (with the valid name in parentheses): R. longiceps Casey 1916 and R. rectus Casey 1916 (= R. cylindricus LeConte 1866); R. minutus quadriguttatus Méquignon 1913b (= R. minutus minutus Mmnerheim 1853); R. remotus luteus Méquignon 1913b (= R. remotus LeConte 1866); R. sculpturatus horni Méquignon 1913b (= R. sculpturatus Mannerheim 1852); R. dimidiatus testaceus Méquignon 1913b and R. dimidiatus assimilis Méquignon 1913b (= R. dimidiatus Mannerheim 1843). The subgenera name Syringobidia Casey 1916 (type species: R. cylindricus LeConte 1866) is treated as a new junior subjective synonym of Rhizophagus s.str. A key to all Nearctic species of Rhizophagus is provided with distribution maps of the species.

Ce travail comprend une révision des espèces néarctiques du sous-genre Anomophagus Reitter appartenant au genre Rhizophagus Herbst. Quatre taxa y sont traités : R. brunneus brunneus Horn 1879, R. brunneus fenyesi Méquignon 1913a, R. pseudobrunneus sp.nov. et R. galbus sp.nov.

Pour chacune des autres espèces néarctiques du genre, l’auteur mentionne les caractères diagnostiques, traite des spécimens de la série-type et indique la répartition géographique. Deux nouveaux taxa sont décrits : R. minutus rotundicollis et R. pusillus. Sept noms du groupe-espèce sont traités comme nouveaux synonymes (le nom le plus ancien est indiqué entre parenthèses), soit R. longiceps Casey 1916 et R. rectus Casey 1916 (R. cylindricus LeConte 1866), R. minutus guadriguttatus Méquignon 1913b (= R. minutus minutus Mannerheim 1853), R. remotus luteus Méquignon 1913b (= R. remotus LeConte 1866), R. sculpturatus horni Méquignon 1913b (= R. sculpturatus Mannerheim 1852), R. dimidiatus testaceus Méquignon 1913b and R. dimidiatus assimilis Méquignon 1913b (= R. dimidiatus Mannerheim 1843). Le nom subgénérique Syringobidia Casey 1916 (espèce-type : R. cylindricus LeConte 1866) est considéré comme un synonyme plus récent de Rhizophagus s.str. Enfin, le lecteur trouvera un tableau de détermination et des cartes de répartition de toutes les espèces néarctiques du genre Rhizophagus.
