In fact, spiracles, except for the posteriormost in some, are normally greatly reduced on aquatic beetle larvae. lateralis, Aq. Larvae of aquatic Coleoptera can be recognized by the presence of a sclerotized head, three pairs of segmented thoracic legs, and the absence of wing pads. Larvae have elongated body and can be distinguished by the presence of sclerotized head, distinct neck, three pairs of segmented legs and prominent mandibles. Much of the higher‐level relationships of Hydraenidae remain untested and given that both groups have substantial ecological variability, major classification changes are likely. For simplicity and the purposes of this review, I limit discussion to families within the five major groups in which the vast majority of species have adults and/or larvae occupying aquatic habitats: Myxophaga, ‘Hydradephaga’, Hydraenidae, Hydrophiloidea and the core aquatic Byrrhoidea (Dryopidae, Psephenidae, Lutrochidae, Elmidae). In a large two‐gene study, McKenna et al. 0000006179 00000 n %%EOF As with hygropetric habitats, the existence of these communities was known but not the extent of their phylogenetic diversity or species richness. Lawrence et al. B) and have one claw on each tarsi (Fig. aquatic beetle larvae. (2016) elevated Protelmini (a small group of about six described species from the Afrotropics and Neotropics) from a tribe of Elmidae to its own family, Protelmidae. In group after group, mounting molecular support for nontraditional relationships has required reconsideration of the morphology and classification of families considered stable (e.g. H��Wَ��}�W�K*�hw%q���ց=v`3�{JdI�..�V~d~7��Bqi� {�xd�������GJ��z�x�ݺ���~�!��!ԉ�ٛ�l�ų�&$I#rH����c;��,������u-*�4�i Among insect orders, only Diptera has more aquatic taxa (though just as larvae) than Coleoptera, and the two largest water beetle families, Dytiscidae and Hydrophilidae, each have more species than either Ephemeroptera or Plecoptera. Water Beetles (Coleoptera) on the Net. 0000003394 00000 n ����x~H�b���r� fU� The development of increasingly robust regional DNA barcode databases (Hendrich et al., 2015) has made accurate identifications (at least to some level of taxonomic resolution) of unknown larvae more feasible, which also has implications for aquatic bioassessment (Sweeney et al., 2011). Larvae are known to live in semiaquatic or aquatic habitats, such as decaying damp logs and organic muck. This changed dramatically with the discovery of a vast community of diving beetles living in calcrete aquifers in Western Australia (e.g. The relationships between, and within, the families of aquatic Byrrhoidea are the least understood among water beetle lineages. Miller & Bergsten (2012) recently published a detailed total‐evidence phylogeny of Gyrinidae based on morphology and five genes, and revised the classification of the family accordingly. %PDF-1.4 %���� The behaviour of the ants toward the two groups and the numbers of captured and un-captured larvae from each group were recorded. 0000016688 00000 n How the families are positioned within Elateriformia, and even if they are themselves reciprocally monophyletic, remains unclear. In one recent attempt to estimate the actual diversity, Jäch & Balke (2008) suggested that water beetles were approximately 70% described (although their circumscription of water beetles differs slightly from that of this review). Catalogue references are global unless otherwise indicated. The larvae of most myxophagan genera are described (10 of 13). Ecologically, focussing on undersampled sampled habitats such as seepages, underground waters and, to a lesser degree, the margins of river and streams, will likely yield new discoveries regardless of their geographical location. Many aquatic habitats are definable and discrete in space and time, a luxury more difficult to find in terrestrial systems. in Hydrophiloidea, Fikáček et al., 2010; see also Ponomarenko & Prokin, 2015, for a general review). The order Coleoptera includes more species than any order, constitutes 25 % of known life forms. wuhana and Luciola cruciata were bred in tap water following the method outlined in Fu et. Studies that only discuss phylogeny or do not themselves present a new analysis are not included. Although there have been numerous and persistent efforts to resolve relationships within various genera, tribes, and subfamilies, the family as a whole has been surprisingly little studied. Notable exceptions include Spanglerogyrus and Heterogyrus among Gyrinidae and the early‐diverging noterid genus Notomicrus. 0000002582 00000 n Subterranean aquatic habitats such as underground cave and aquifer systems have long been known to host unique water beetle communities. C). Of the four currently recognized subfamilies of Hydraenidae, most larval descriptions are from the more species‐rich and widespread Hydraeninae and Ochthebiinae. A few species) additional families have a limited number of aquatic species. 0000016459 00000 n The unusual occurrence of water beetles in amber: Phylogeny and classification of whirligig beetles (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae): relaxed‐clock model outperforms parsimony and time‐free Bayesian analyses, The phylogeny and classification of diving beetles (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), Ecology, Systematics, and Natural History of Predaceous Diving Beetles (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), Association of insect life stages using DNA sequences: the larvae of, Phylogeny of the Hydroporinae and classification of the genus, Phylogeny and classification of the diving beetle tribe Cybistrini (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), Phylogeny and classification of the tribe Hydaticini (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae): partition choice for Bayesian analysis with multiple nuclear and mitochondrial protein‐coding genes, Phylogenetic placement of north American subterranean diving beetles (Coleopera: Dytiscidae), Larval morphology and phylogenetic position of, Larval morphology and biology of the New Zealand‐Chilean genera, Beyond barcodes: complex DNA taxonomy of a South Pacific Island radiation, Anisomeriini diving beetles – an Atlantic‐Pacific Island disjunction on Tristan da Cunha and Juan Fernández?

To further examine the effectiveness of the larval secretions, the responses of several terrestrial and aquatic predators common About 25,000 species occur in North America, north of Mexico, but only about 1200 of these are purely aquatic. Fossils for all six hydrophiloid families except Epimetopidae have been described, though the few fossils currently assigned to Georissidae are of doubtful attribution (M. Fikáček, personal communication). Consequently, although there is no question that thousands of new species of aquatic beetles remain to be discovered or described, they are among the better‐known and best‐catalogued groups of beetles. … 2001 Aquatic Coleoptera Bibliography compiled by Sharon Jasper. In the last quarter of a century, more than 200 studies have generated new hypotheses of relationships based on a wide range of morphological and molecular data (Table 2). The newsletter for aquatic Coleoptera workers. Cretodineutus rotundus gen. et sp. The Palaearctic already is relatively high in species richness but much better described than the tropical regions. However, many of these other early larger‐scale studies were confounded by incomplete sampling of major lineages or poor resolution/low support along the backbone of the tree. Coleoptera of Rhode Island: An on-line database. (2016) inferred the phylogeny of Byrrhoidea using four genes. Hydrochus falsus Hellman in Worthington et al., 2016). E). 0 They are able to survive in and colonise practically all freshwater habitats, and some species can tolerate harsh environmental Within Hydroscaphidae, the larvae of the Neotropical genera Confossa and Yara remain unknown, as does the Malagasy Incoltorrida (Torridincolidae). Our knowledge of the diversity and phylogeny each of the 23 families water beetles is reviewed. D) with the spiracles on the terminal abdominal segment forming sclerotized hooks (Fig. Stephen Baca, David Bilton, Jennifer Girón, Grey Gustafson, Martin Fikáček and Ignacio Ribera graciously provided valuable feedback on early drafts of this manuscript. Shull et al., 2001; Ribera et al., 2002; McKenna et al., 2015, but see Maddison et al., 2009). Although compression fossils are prevalent, amber inclusions dating back to the Late Cretaceous are not uncommon (e.g. Number of times cited according to CrossRef: Aquatic Beetles (Coleoptera) of the University of Mississippi Field Station, Lafayette County, Mississippi, USA. 0000003470 00000 n 48 0 obj<>stream Water beetles, although defined by their affinity for aquatic ways of life, occupy a broad array of habitats, and have shifted secondarily back to their terrestrial roots (either as adults, larvae or both) on multiple occasions. Please check your email for instructions on resetting your password. Learn about our remote access options. aquatic adults vs. aquatic larvae vs. aquatic adults and larvae). The branching pattern of the hydradephagan families has received significant attention, although no strong consensus on interfamilial relationships has yet emerged. adults, while others are aquatic as adults or as larvae. I also provide a ‘horizon scan’ of where water beetle systematics is going, and how its prominence and role in shaping our understanding of evolutionary biology will continue to increase. Because of their ecological sympatry, for centuries water beetle specialists have often collected and/or studied multiple families in this guild rather than limiting themselves to one particular lineage. 1516149 | Learning to See, Seeing to Learn A Sociotechnical System Supporting Taxonomic Identification Activities in Volunteer-Based Water Quality Biomonitoring Due to being defined by ecology rather than a single clade, which groups fall under the aquatic beetle umbrella differ slightly depending on the specialist. (2017) described a spectacularly preserved fossil from Cretaceous Burmese amber, and provided a checklist of pre‐Quaternary fossils for the family. These discoveries of hundreds of new species and many new lineages show how much remains unknown about water beetle communities.

I thank Michael Balke (Aspidytidae, Hygrobiidae), Martin Fikáček (Epimetopidae, Helophoridae), Guy Hanley (Amphizoidae), David Maddison (Lepiceridae), K.B. Materials and methods Laccophinae being a highly nested, late diverging lineage in Miller & Bergson but sister to the remaining Dytiscidae in Michat et al., 2017). Aquatic beetles have a rich fossil record due to strongly sclerotized bodies and predilection for habitats such as lakes and marshes that enhances preservation (Smith, 2000). The full text of this article hosted at iucr.org is unavailable due to technical difficulties. Ribera et al., 2008; Bloom et al., 2014). 0000009381 00000 n ENVIRONMENT. In temperate regions, beetles from most major groups commonly exhibit univoltine life cycles. Water Beetles as Models in Ecology and Evolution. Characters such as the number of tarsal claws, number of leg segments, body shape, and antennal length are diagnostic characters for Coleoptera larvae. Diving beetle fossils attributable to extant clades have been described from Baltic and Dominican amber, including representatives of Copelatinae (Copelatus aphroditae Balke, 2003; Copelatus predaveterus Miller, 2003; Miller & Blake, 2003), Hydroporinae (Hydroporus carstengroehni Balke et al., 2010), and Agabinae (Hydrotrupes prometheus Gomez & Damgaard, 2014). The last decade in particular has seen a plethora of new fossils come to light and – of equal importance – reappraisals and clarifications of century‐old unreliable descriptions (e.g. Similarly, larvae have been described for representatives of all families, subfamilies and tribes of Hydrophiloidea, and despite continued progress, our knowledge at the genus and species level remains substantially underdeveloped (Archangelsky et al., 2016). A Distributional Checklist of the Beetles (Coleoptera) of Florida. Indeed, Psephenidae is probably better known as larvae than as adults. For breathing, some diving beetles (Coleoptera) and bugs (Hemiptera) entrap an air bubble beneath the … Coleoptera Morphology Larvae: Larvae of … Coleoptera The Coleoptera (beetles) is the most speciose of all the insect orders with over 5,000 aquatic species. The Beetles of the Virgin Islands. We need modern molecular phylogenies integrated with morphological data for all lineages. Fossils of the family Haliplidae have been rare but are known as far back as the lower Cretaceous (Prokin & Ponomarenko 2013, Prokop et al. Using a combination of adult and immature characters and a single gene, Miller (2001a, 2003) made the first attempt to infer a family‐wide phylogeny. A drawback is that none of these catalogues are expressly digital, or allow for real‐time updates, corrections or additions. Water beetles from hygropetric habitats such as waterfalls and rock seepages generally were considered novelties or aberrant lineages rather than major radiations of phylogenetic significance in their own right. Phylogenies examining interfamilial relationships using adult (Beutel, 1999) and larval characters (Beutel et al., 1999, but excluding Lepiceridae) have found a generally consistent branching pattern of (Lepiceridae + (Torridincollidae + (Hydroscaphidae + Sphaeriusiidae))). The taxonomy of aquatic beetles has long benefited from a dedicated and relatively large community of both professional and amateur entomologists. They mostly climb among aquatic vegetation or crawl in the sediments of shallow waters.

Although most aquatic byrrhoid families are known in the fossil record, the oldest known representatives (to date) are comparatively young, with Elmidae and Psephenidae known from the Eocene, and Dryopidae and Lutrochidae from the Oligocene (Ponomarenko & Prokin, 2015). � �0���Ḧ��'3����Fn"�_�ֱ Within Hydradephaga, most subfamilies and tribes have the immature stages described for at least one taxon. startxref In general the larvae of aquatic beetles may be said to be modified in respect of respiratory apparatus but otherwise they greatly re semble terrestrial larvae. The Coleoptera key does not include some semiaquatic taxa which may be collected in aquatic invertebrate samples, but it will be sufficient for the major groups. 0000001429 00000 n Watts & Humphreys, 2003, 2006). (2011), whereas those in Elmidae are discussed in Jäch et al. The largest order with over 130 families and 350,000 species worldwide or about one-third of all described animal species. Consolidating these catalogues into a single, online platform should be the goal. For a more detailed summary of how various water beetle groups are defined, and for a limited review of aquatic taxa in otherwise dominant terrestrial families, see Jäch (1998) and Jäch & Balke (2008). Most water beetles can only live in fresh water, with a few marine species that live in the intertidal zone or littoral zone.There are approximately 2000 species of true water beetles native to lands throughout the world. Water beetles have been a popular study group among professional and amateur entomologists alike, even boasting their own international society, the UK‐based Balfour‐Browne Club. The monumental work by Larson et al. Although new species are still to be found, they are often either isolated/unusual endemics (e.g. A case study using water beetles of family Dytiscidae (Coleoptera), Recognition of a species‐poor, geographically restricted but morphologically diverse cape lineage of diving beetles (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae: Hyphydrini), Speciation of Iberian diving beetles in Pleistocene refugia (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae), The effect of habitat type on speciation rates and range movements in aquatic beetles: inferences from species‐level phylogenies, Discovery of aspidytidae, a new family of aquatic Coleoptera, Phylogeny of Hydradephagan water beetles inferred from 18S rDNA sequences, Evolution, mitochondrial DNA phylogeny and systematic position of the Macaronesian endemic Hydrotarsus Falkenström (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography and population history of, Phylogeny and historical biogeography of Agabinae diving beetles (Coleoptera) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences, Molecular phylogeny and diversification of diving beetles (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae), The geography of speciation in narrow range endemics of the “, Evolution of the male genitalia in the genus, Molecular ecology and phylogenetics of the water beetle genus, Phylogeny, evolution and classification of the giant water scavenger beetles (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Hydrophilini: Hydrophilina), World catalogue of the Hydrophiloidea (Coleoptera): additions and corrections II (2006–2010), Molecular phylogeny, evolution, and classification of the Hydrophilidae (Coleoptera), Systematics and biology of the endemic water scavenger beetles of Hawaii (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Hydrophilini), Molecular phylogeny of the Hydroscaphidae (Coleoptera: Myxophaga) with description of a remarkable new lineage from the Guiana shield, Phylogeny, classification, and evolution of the water scavenger beetle tribe Hydrobiusini inferred from morphology and molecules (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Hydrophilinae), Sequence alignment of 18S ribosomal RNA and the basal relationships of adephagan beetles: evidence for monophyly of aquatic families and the placement of Trachypachidae, Beetle taphonomy in a recent ephemeral lake in southeastern Arizona, Habitat‐dependent diversification and parallel molecular evolution: water scavenger beetles as a case study, A new aquatic beetle family, Meruidae, from Venezuela (Coleoptera: Adephaga), Range expansion and ancestral niche reconstruction in the Mediterranean diving beetle genus. The larval phylogeny largely agrees with Miller & Bergsten (2014) with regard to the monophyly of most tribes and subfamilies, though there are exceptions (e.g. Michat et al. 0000002881 00000 n Psephenidae, Scirtidae). 0000006712 00000 n Grant No. Most species‐rich families of Hydradephaga have been the subject of phylogenetic studies in the last decade. We still need comprehensive resources for the identification of Elmidae, Dryopidae, Hydraenidae and Hydrophilidae. Already about 100 species have been described in little more than a decade, and many more await description. In the most robust study to date, Kundrata et al. Phylogenomic analysis of the beetle suborder Adephaga with comparison of tailored and generalized ultraconserved element probe performance. Often, discrepancies between morphological and molecular datasets have not been due to a difference in the quality of characters, but instead are due to inaccurate and subjective assessments of homology.
