AbstractThe occurrence of nitidulid beetles of the genus Carpophilus in the Netherlands (Coleoptera:
Nitidulidae)
Some species of the genus Carpophilus (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae) may act as pests of stored
products like cocoabeans, peanuts, dried fruits like figs and dates, imported from tropical or
subtropical countries. The aim of this study is to review the status of the seven recorded species
in our country. Carpophilus sexpustulatus is a European species which occurs naturally in the
Netherlands. It is the only species which has not been found in dried food stuffs. The other
six species are imported with dried fruit, seeds and nuts. Of these C. marginellus seems to have
succeeded in building up populations in the Netherlands and this species is considered as
established. Carpophilus hemipterus did try to establish populations in the open air but seems
not to have succeeded until now. This species is classified as incidentally introduced. The
records of C. dimidiatus, ligneus, mutilatus and obsoletus don’t show indications of breeding
populations and these four species are also classified as incidentally introduced. Carpophilus
bipustulatus was mentioned bij Brakman (1966) as to be expected, but until now the species
has not been recorded from the Netherlands.
