Uittreksel

In this article we review the Burrowing Water Beetles (Coleoptera: Noteridae) from Belize based on recently collected material and literature records. In total nine species belonging to four genera are recorded from Belize. Six species, i.e. Hydrocanthus debilis Sharp, 1882, H. marmoratus Sharp, 1882, Mesonoterus leavicollis Sharp, 1882, Suphisellus insularis (Sharp, 1882), S. nigrinus (Aubé, 1838) and Notomicrus sharpi J. Balfour-Browne, 1939 are recorded from Belize for the first time. All species are briefly discussed and illustrated along with their male genitalia. Notes on the ecology are given for all species and their known distribution in Belize is mapped. Furthermore a key for identification of the species is provided.
