Specimen occurrence data were compiled for all available specimens of the rove genus Bolitogyrus from localities in the Oriental region. Specimens were assigned to species in the context of the accompanying revision of all Oriental species. Localities were checked using GoogleEarth and occasionally, other websites (e.g., park websites) were used to verify GPS coordinates.
Montenegrina is an obligate rock-dwelling door-snail genus, associated with habitats of limestone outcrops. The geographic range of Montenegrina includes the coastal regions of Montenegro south of the Bay of Kotor, Albania, western Macedonia, and northwestern Greece. In geographical terms it extends from the southernmost parts of the Dinaric Mountains to the northern part of the Pindos Mountains, and is separated from the eastern Balkans (Moesia) by the Vardar Basin and the Kosovo Plain. Biogeographically this area can be classified as part of the South Adriatic–Ionian province.
The present classification of Montenegrina distinguishes 29 species and 106 subspecies, making it the second most…
This paper describes USBombus, a large dataset that represents the outcomes of the largest
standardized survey of bee pollinators (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Bombus) on the planet. The
motivation to collect live bumble bees across the US was to document the decline and
conservation status of Bombus affinis, B. occidentalis, B. pensylvanicus, and B. terricola. The
results of study have been published Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences as
“Patterns of widespread decline in North American bumble bees” by Cameron et al. (2011). In
this dataset we have documented a total of 17,796 adult occurrence records across 391 locations
and 38 species of Bombus. The geospatial coverage …
This occurrence dataset contains the underlying data for: "A revision of the Neotropical species of Bolitogyrus Chevrolat, a geographically disjunct lineage of Staphylinini (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae)". It contains 697 specimen records for the rarely collected rove beetle genus Bolitogyrus and encompasses all available, identifiable records from insect collections worldwide.
Cracids are among the most vulnerable groups of Neotropical birds. Almost half of the species of this family are included in a conservation risk category. Twelve taxa occur in Mexico, six of which are considered at risk at national level and two are globally endangered. Therefore, it is imperative that high quality, comprehensive, and high-resolution spatial data on the occurrence of these taxa are made available as a valuable tool in the process of defining appropriate management strategies for conservation at a local and global level. We constructed the CracidMex1 database by collating global records of all cracid taxa that occur in Mexico from available electronic databases, museum speci…
Bees are among the most important pollinators of flowering plants in most ecosystems. Recent concerns about population declines worldwide have highlighted the urgent societal need for species-level systematic work that facilitates assessments of the status of pollinators and pollination services. The data is based on a comprehensive, broadly comparative study on the diversity, biology, biogeography, and evolution of Anthidium Fabricius, one of the most diverse megachilid genera containing more than 160 species worldwide. All 92 recognized species, including the two adventive species A. oblongatum and A. manicatum, are presented in this data set. A neotype for A. emarginatum (Say) and lectot…
The terrestrial ecosystems of Victoria Land, Antarctica are characteristically simple in terms of biological diversity and ecological functioning. Nematodes are the most commonly encountered and abundant metazoans of Victoria Land soils, yet little is known of their diversity and distribution. Herein we present a summary of the geographic distribution, habitats and ecology of the terrestrial nematodes of Victoria Land from published and unpublished sources.

Data compiled for study of Megophthalmidia (Diptera: Mycetophilidae) of North America. Published in Zookeys, 2014, under the title, "The Megophthalmidia (Diptera: Mycetophilidae) of North America including eight new species."
Data from: Miller JA, Griswold CE, Yin CM (2009) The symphytognathoid spiders of the Gaoligongshan, Yunnan, China (Araneae, Araneoidea): Systematics and diversity of micro-orbweavers. ZooKeys 11: 9-195. doi: 10.3897/zookeys.11.160
Occurrence data for all specimens of the spider families Theridiosomatidae, Mysmenidae, Anapidae, and Symphytognathidae collected during an inventory of the Gaoligongshan, Yunnan, China, 1998-2007.
Seven species of Hydraenidae, Hydrophilidae and Elmidae are recorded from temporary freshwater habitats at the Ateneo de Manila University Campus in the metropolitan area of Manila, Philippines. They were identified as Enochrus (Lumetus) fragiloides d’Orchymont, Helochares (Hydrobaticus) lepidus d’Orchymont, Helochares (Helochares) pallens (MacLeay), Stenelmis sp.1, Hydraena (Hydraenopsis) scabra d’Orchymont, Hydraena (Hydraenopsis) palawanensis Freitag & Jäch, and the recently describen Hydraena (Hydraenopsis) ateneo Freitag. Records of all additional type material of the latter species from central Luzon are listed as well.
This dataset compiles occurrence data (all data are referenced by locality names and georeferenced WGS1984) of fossil echinoids collated from the literature published over a century and a half, from 1857 to 2012, by Cotteau (1857—1878; 1862—1867), Valette (1908), Corroy (1925), Rat et al. (1987), and Saucède et al. (2012). The dataset was completed by data from collection specimens housed at the department of Geology of Université de Bourgogne (Dijon, France), specimens sampled in the field by J Houdard, A Valette, B David, and P Robert, at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (Paris, France), specimens sampled by J Lambert, and at the department of Geosciences of Université de Rennes 1…

Locality data for 6 beefly specimens deposited in the Queensland Museum, Australia for 3 new species of Australian beeflies belonging to the Exoprosopini; Palirika mackenziei Lambkin, Palirika culgoafloodplainensis Lambkin, and Larrpana bushblitzi Lambkin.
Two new species of Brueelia are described and illustrated. These new species and their type hosts are: Brueelia sueta ex Pharomachrus pavoninus (Spix, 1824), the Pavonine Quetzal and Brueelia cicchinoi ex Trogon viridis Linnaeus, the White-tailed Trogon. Both new species differ from the only Brueelia described on Trogon mexicanus by many morphological features, including those present in the male genitalia and female vulvar margin. Partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene for these two new species differ from one another by 13.6% uncorrected p-distance. Whereas B. cicchinoi is only 0.3% divergent from previously published COI sequences identified as Brueelia sp…
