ROIG-JUNENT, Sergio; FLORES, Gustavo E.; OCAMPO, Federico C.  and  SMITH, Andrew B.. New records of Coleoptera for Argentina (Carabidae, Lucanidae, Scarabeidae and Tenebrionidae). Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2004, vol.63, n.3-4, pp.45-48. ISSN 0373-5680.

A short expedition to northern Patagonia was made in January 2003. The main goal of the trip was to survey the diversity of some families of Coleoptera in the insufficient explored steppes in Mendoza and Neuquén provinces, Argentina and Nothofagus forests of Neuquén province. The techniques included manual collection and the use of different kinds of traps, such as with bite or artificial light of mercury. The study of the material revealed four new genera records and four new species records for the country: Nothobroscus Roig-Juñent & Ball and Mimophilorizus Mateu (Carabidae), Callyntra Solier and Homocyrtus Reitter (Tenebrionidae) are the new genus records. Cnemalobus sulciferus Philippi (Carabidae), Allidiostoma landbecki (Philippi), Macrodactylus chilensis Solier, and Brachysternus marginatus (Germain) (Scarabeidae), and Pycnosiphorus philippii (Westwood) (Lucanidae) are the new species records. A brief description of the habitats where the species were collected is provided.

Keywords : Argentina; Carabidae; Lucanidae; Scarabaeidae; Tenebrionidae; New records.
