Clypeogethes elongatus (Rosenhauer, 1856) in Sardinia (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae, Meligethinae)
Keywords:Clypeogethes elongatus, Brassicaceae, Sardinia
Clypeogethes elongatus (Rosenhauer, 1856) is a pollen-beetle species occurring in SW Mediterranean areas, from Southern Iberian Peninsula to most of the North Africa; this uncommon species was thus far known from Italy only from the Pantelleria Island (southern Sicily). Recent researches in SW Sardinia allowed to find a small relic population of this species in Cagliari (San Michele hill), where it is certainly associated with early-flowering Brassicaceae, on chalk based rocks.
