Sur quelques Coléoptères saproxyliques remarquables ou nouveaux pour la France métropolitaine

Abstract : The authors present in detail some recent records of 15 species of saproxylic Beetles rare or remarkable for the French fauna. They mainly come from inventories carried out by the entomology network of the National forestry office (ONF), as well as from traps of the Pine wilt Nematode national monitoring plan of the Forest health department (DSF). These are Nothorhina muricata (Dalman, 1817) (Cerambycidae), Cerylon impressum Erichson, 1845 and Philothermus semistriatus (Perris, 1865) (Cerylonidae), Margarinotus merdarius Hoffman, 1803, Merohister ariasi (Marseul, 1864) and Platysoma lineare Erichson, 1834 (Histeridae), Rhizophagus oblongicollis Blatch & Horner, 1892 and R. unicolor Lucas, 1846 (Monotomidae), Mycetophagus decempunctatus F., 1801 (Mycetophagidae), Cacotemnus thomsoni (Kraatz, 1881), Dorcatoma ambjoerni Baranowski, 1985 and D. vaulogeri Pic, 1927 (Ptinidae), Corticeus fraxini (Kugelann, 1794) and C. vanmeeri Soldati & Soldati, 2014 (Tenebrionidae) as well as Synchita fallax Schuh, 1998 (Zopheridae). Xylophilus testaceus (Herbst, 1806) (Eucnemidae) is discovered in Corsica that confirms its occurrence in France. Silvanoprus angusticollis (Reitter, 1876) (Silvanidae) is for the first time intercepted in France, at the port of Le Havre (Seine-Maritime) and it is only the 2nd European interception. Coments are made and photos of habitus of several species are presented.
