A Faunistic Study on Aquatic Coleoptera (Helophoridae:Hydrophilidae) Species in Elazig Province, Turkey.

Byline: Abdullah Mart, Ramazan Tolan, Fatma Caf and Mustafa Koyun

: Abstract.- In this study, we have recorded 46 species and one subspecies of aquatic Coleoptera (Helophoridae: Hydrophilidae) belonging to 14 genera (Helophorus, Paracymus, Anacaena, Berosus, Chaetarthria, Enochrus, Helochares, Hydrobius, Hydrochara, Laccobius, Cymbiodyta, Coelostoma, Cercyon and Cryptopleurum) based on the inventories conducted between 2011-2012 in Elazig province of Turkey. Of these, Cryptopleurum crenatum (Kugelann 1794) has been newly recorded for the Hydrophilidae fauna of Eastern Anatolia region. In addition, all species of Helophoridae and Hydrophilidae (except Berosus spinosus (Steven, 1808)) were new records for the Coleoptera fauna of Elazig.

Key words: Coleoptera, Helophoridae, Hydrophilidae.INTRODUCTION

Elazig province is located in the southwest of Eastern Anatolia Region, in North Euphrate part between the 40o 21' and 38o 30' east longitude and38o 17' and 39o 11' north latitude. It has an area of9281 km2 consisting of 8455 km2 of land and 826 km2 dam site. The province's land forms consist of mountainous areas, plains and plateaus. Its main river is Euphrate and its branches. Having an area of86 km2 Lake Hazar is a tectonic lake extendingsouthwest-northeast direction. As Elazig province is surrounded by such significant dams as Keban, Kiralkizi and Ozluce it includes rather different aquatic and semi-aquatic habitats with different altitudes.The Helophoridae is a large family consisting of a single subfamily only of a single genus, Helophorus. This genus comprises more than 190 species (Incekara et al., 2004a), represented in 3 major zoogeographical regions (Palearctic, Nearctic and Ethiopian) (Balfour-Browne, 1958; Chiesa,1964; Angus, 1988, 1992, 1998; Smetana, 1985; Hansen, 1987, 1999, 2004; Hebauer, 1994).The Hydrophilidae is a large family, represented in all parts of the world and consisting of 172 genera and about 2716 known species. Of thefour subfamilies recognized only two(Hydrophilinae, Sphaeridiinae) are recorded fromthe Palearctic region (Balfour-Browne, 1958; Chiesa, 1964; Gentili and Chiesa, 1975; Wooldridge, 1978; Gentili, 1974, 1979, 1981, 1988,1991, 2000; Smetana, 1985; Hansen, 1987, 1999,2004; SchAldl, 1991, 1993, 1997, 1998; Hebauer,1994; Hebauer and Klausnitzer, 1998; Gentili and Whitehead, 2000; Mart et al., 2003). So far, 48 species and two subspecies of Helophoridae, 19 genera and 99 species of Hydrophilidae have been recorded from Turkey (Darilmaz and Incekara,2011; Aydogan, 2011; Turken, 2011; Yilmaz,2011). The aim of this study is to determine Helophoridae and Hydrophilidae in Elazig province, of which only one species has been known so far and thereby to contribute to the Turkish aquatic Coleoptera fauna

MATERIALS AND METHODS

In summer seasons of 2011 and 2012, specimens of Hydrophilidae were collected by means of a sieve, perforated ladle and net with 1 mm pores from the shallow areas of various springs, streams, lakes and ponds in Elazig province of Turkey. Firstly collected samples were killed by ethyl acetate in the research area and then aedeagophores of the beetles were dissected under a stereo microscope in the laboratory. Photographs of the main diagnostic characters were made using Olympus SZX16 microscope. All samples have been deposited in the Zoological Museum of Department of Biology, BingAll University.Material examinedElazig: Karakocan, Akpinar, 39o03'36N40o05'40E, 1635 m, 24.V.2012, 7 2, det., A.

DISCUSSION

The Helophoridae and Hydrophilidae fauna of Turkey has been studied by several domestic and foreign scientists. According to their reports, total number of the Helophoridae (50) and Hydrophilidae (99) fauna of Turkey consist of 149 taxon. There are a total of 81 administrative divisions in Turkey of which 22 provinces (Aksaray, Amasya, Ankara, Artvin, Balikesir, Bayburt, Bilecik, BingAll, Bursa, Canakkale, Corum, Erzincan, Erzurum, Giresun, Gumushane, Kayseri, Ordu, Samsun, Tokat, Trabzon, Rize and Yozgat) were relatively well studied for Helophoridae and Hydrophilidae (Darilmaz and Incekara, 2001). This is the first study to determine the Helophoridae and Hydrophilidae fauna of Elazig province. Until the present work, no record of belonging to the Helophoridae family has been known in Elazig province. But the only species which has already been known in Elazig province is Berosus spinosus (Steven, 1808) belonging to Hydrophilidae family.In this study, 14 species belonging to thefamily Helophoridae in Elazig province have been registered for the first time. In addition to the number of known species of the family Hydrophilidae 32 species and one subspecies have been recorded for the first time. And, Cryptopleurum crenatum (Kugelann 1794) has been recorded for the first time in the Eastern Anatolian region.In order to improve our knowledge on Turkish water beetles, we have to focus on no searched or less searched areas.ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This study is a part of M.S. Thesis by Ramazan Tolan (2013) supported by BingAll University Project no: BAP-281-57-2011.
