Three new species and a new record of neotropical pocadlus erichson 1843 (coleoptera nitidulidae)
Three species of nitidulid beetles from Ecuador and Costa Rica are described as new: Pocadius maquipucunensis, P. ephite, and P. ephite and P. jelineki. These species were collected from puffball fungi of the genus Lycoperdon or in flight-intercept traps located in high-altitude cloud forests. Pocadius dimidiatus Jelínek 1977, previously known from Argentina, is reported from Tambopata Province, Peru. Specimens of P. dimidiatus were collected from fungi in the genera Lycoperdon and Geaster or in flight-intercept traps located in lowland tropical rainforest. © 1994 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
