d'histoire naturelle, Case postale 6434, 1211 Geneva 6, Switzerland
Ivan Löbl (2012) The rove beetle subfamily Scaphidiinae
of Taiwan is still inadequately studied. The present paper provides a
review of Taiwanese members of Baeocera
Erichson, which is one of the more species-rich genera of this group.
While only 5 species were previously reported from Taiwan, 15 species
are recognized at present: B. alesi
sp. nov., B. aliena sp. nov.,
B. alishana sp. nov., B. anchorifera sp. nov., B. lindae sp. nov., and B. mutata sp. nov. are described as
new and illustrated. Baeocera
caliginosa, B. cooteri,
B. longicornis, and B. takizawai are reported for the
1st time from Taiwan. A key to the Taiwanese species of Baeocera is provided.
Key words: Coleoptera, Staphylinidae,
