          Abstract

          Resumen Entre los herbívoros de la clase Insecta más importantes económicamente, se encuentran los crisomélidos, quienes además son vectores de bacterias y virus fitopatógenos. En Tamaulipas, se listan 610 especies de plantas útiles, de las cuales 30% son comestibles. Procesos ecológicos como la herbivoría causada por insectos reducen la calidad, cantidad y precio de los productos vegetales (hojas, tallos, raíces, flores, frutos, semillas) que son dañados total o parcialmente. En el presente estudio se realizaron colectas mensuales de manera directa y con red de golpeo durante un año a partir de febrero 2012 a enero 2013, en las localidades del Cañón La Libertad y el Cañón del Novillo, localizadas en el municipio de Victoria, Tamaulipas. El material biológico se colectó principalmente de especies vegetales de importancia económica, se transportó al laboratorio de entomología del IEA-UAT para su determinación taxonómica. Se determinaron 26 especies de crisomélidos pertenecientes a 24 géneros.

          Abstract Among the most economically important insect herbivores are Chrysomelidae, who are also bacteria vectors and phytopathogenic viruses. In Tamaulipas, 610 species of useful plants are listed, of which 30% are edible. Ecological processes such as herbivory caused by insect reduce the quality, quantity and price of plant products (leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruits, seeds) which are fully or partially damaged. In the present study monthly collections were made directly and with insect net for a year from February 2012 to January 2013 in the localities of Cañon La Libertad and Cañon del Novillo, located in the municipality of Victoria, Tamaulipas. The biological material was mainly collected from plant species of economic importance, transported to the laboratory of entomology at the IEA-UAT for taxonomic determination. 26 species of Chrysomelidae belonging to 24 genera were determined.

          Diversity and altitudinal distribution of Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera) in Peregrina Canyon, Tamaulipas, Mexico

          Abstract The Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera) is a highly speciose family that has been poorly studied at the regional level in Mexico. In the present study, we estimated species richness and diversity in oak-pine forest, Tamaulipan thorny scrub and in tropical deciduous forests in Peregrina Canyon within the Altas Cumbres Protected Area of the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. Sampling of Chrysomelidae consisted of five sweep net samples (200 net sweeps) within each of three sites during four sample periods: early dry season, late dry season, early wet season, and late wet season. Species were identified and total numbers per species were recorded for each sample. A total of 2,226 specimens were collected belonging to six subfamilies, 81 genera and 157 species of Chrysomelidae from the study area. Galerucinae was the most abundant subfamily with 1,828 specimens, representing 82.1% of total abundance in the study area. Lower abundance was recorded in Cassidinae (8.5%), Eumolpinae (3.6%), Cryptocephalinae (2.2%), Chrysomelinae (2.2%), and finally Criocerinae (1.3%). The highest species richness was also presented in the subfamily Galerucinae with 49% of the total obtained species followed by Cassidinae (20%), Cryptocephalinae (9.7%), Eumolpinae (9.7%), Chrysomelinae (6.5%) and Criocerinae (5.2%). The most common species were Centralaphthona fulvipennis Jacoby (412 individuals), Centralaphthona diversa (Baly) (248), Margaridisa sp.1 (219), Acallepitrix sp.1 (134), Longitarsus sp.1 (104), Heterispa vinula (Erichson) (91), Epitrix sp.1 (84) and Chaetocnema sp.1 (72). Twenty-two species were doubletons (1.97% of total abundance) and 52 were singletons (2.33%). The estimated overall density value obtained was 0.0037 individuals/m2. The greatest abundance and density of individuals were recorded at the lowest elevation site. However, alpha diversity increased with increasing altitude. Similarity values were less than 50% among the three sites indicating that each site had distinct species assemblages of Chrysomelidae. The highest abundance was obtained during the late dry season, whereas diversity indices were highest during the early wet season. The present work represents the first report of the altitudinal variation in richness, abundance, and diversity of Chrysomelidae in Mexico. These results highlight the importance of conservation of this heterogeneous habitat and establish baseline data for Chrysomelidae richness and diversity for the region.
