The Atomariinae (Coleoptera: Cryptophagidae) fauna of Atlantic Canada are surveyed. Ten species in the genus Atomaria are reported in the region, six of which, including Atomaria distincta Casey, Atomaria fuscata Schönherr, Atomaria lederi Johnson, Atomaria lewisi Reitter, Atomaria testacea Stephens, and Atomaria nigrirostris Stephens, are newly recorded in Canada. Atomaria lederi and A. lewisi are newly recorded in North America. Twenty-three new provincial records are reported. Atomaria curtula Casey, 1900 (syn. n.) is designated as a synonym of Atomaria lewisi Reitter; Atomaria ovalis Casey, 1900 (syn. n.) is designated as a synonym of Atomaria apicalis Erichson, 1846; and Atomaria saginata Casey, 1900 (syn. n.) is designated as a synonym of Atomaria fuscata Schönherr. A key to species is provided, as are species descriptions. Records of all species are given and their distribution in the region is plotted. The global distribution of all Holarctic and adventive species is briefly summarized, and the jurisdictions in North America where they have been reported are compiled. Habitat and bionomic information is also provided for all species, both from within the region, and from observations in European studies. The fauna is briefly discussed from a zoogeographic perspective; two species are Nearctic in origin, five may be Holarctic in distribution, and three others may be adventive Palaearctic species, although further evidence is required to confirm such preliminary assessments. Similarly, because of the paucity of information on this genus, further fieldwork is required to fully discern the distribution of these species in Atlantic Canada. Three are apparently saproxylic species characteristic of forested habitats; three are primarily grassland species; and the remaining four are eurytopic species found in a wide variety of forested and open habitats. © C.G.

Micrambe micoae sp. n. (Coleoptera: Cryptophagidae) from the Iberian Peninsula, the Cabañeros National Park, Ciudad Real, Spain, is described. Differential diagnosis with M. ulicis (Stephens, 1830) is established.


A new species, Monotoma (Monotomina) bousqueti, is described. It was found in La Manga, Province of Murcia, Spain. We present its differences with the nearest known species, M. (M.) quadrifoveolata Aubé, 1837. © Entomologica Fennica.


A replacement name, Arthrolips bowesteadi is proposed for a Japanese species (A. oblonga (Matthews, 1899)). Notes and corrections on the Palaearctic Corylophidae are presented, based on new studies of type specimens and others. These affect especially Sericoderus lateralis (Gyllenhal) and some new synonyms.


Eight species of the genus Cryptophagus Herbst, 1792, belonging to the "dentatus group" from the Palearctic Region are revised. The opinions of differors about the value of the characteristics of the external anatomy are conand an identification key and figures of the studied species are presented. © Entomologica Fennica. 24 June 2013.


A new Himalayan species, Sternodea franzi is described. Notes and corrections on the Palaearctic Cryptophagidae are presented, based on new studies of type specimens and others. These affect Cryptophagus Herbst and especially Micrambe Thomson, with its newly synonymised subgenus Micrambinus Reitter.

New records of notable (or rarer) British Ptiliidae are listed, all collected by the author from the mid-1960s to the present. This paper is to help workers involved in conservation and taxonomic disciplines before my long-planned Ptiliidae 'Atlas' Johnson, in prep.) is published, which will also include new data from revised specimens verified by me in all private and museum collections.
