Tasmanorites

Tasmanorites grossus, from here.


Belongs within: Trechinae.

Tasmanorites is a genus of flightless ground beetles found in damp habitats in Tasmania. They are characterised by small discal pores on the elytra, with the second elytral stria terminating near the posterior discal pore placed well back on the elytral declivity.

Rhysodinae

Kaveinga abbreviata, copyright David R. Maddison.


Belongs within: Conjunctae.

The Rhysodinae are a group of ground beetles found as both adults and larvae in old, rotted logs (Lawrence & Britton 1991).

Characters (from Lawrence & Britton 1991): Black and shiny, subcylindrical to slightly flattened, head and pronotum with deep grooves that are often filled with dried organic material; antennae stout, moniliform, 11-segmented; mouthparts more or less concealed beneath expanded mentum; head strongly constricted posteriorly to form narrow neck; fore coxae globular, trochantins concealed, fore coxal cavities externally closed (internally open); mid coxal cavities moderately separated, laterally open; metasternum without transverse suture; legs relatively short, with weakly developed antenna cleaner on fore tibia, tarsal formula 5-5-5; abdomen with six ventrites, three connate. Larvae elongate, somewhat flattened and lightly sclerotised with short legs, no urogomphi, and transverse rows of asperities or interrupted ridges on T1 to 6 or 7; head prognathous, protracted; stemmata absent; antenna four-segmented; frontoclypeal suture absent; labrum fused; mandibular mola absent; maxillae and labium reduced, usually clothed with fringed membranes, maxilla with single mala, maxillary palp three-segmented, labial palp one-segmented; hypostomal rods present; legs six-segmented, with one tarsal claws; urogomphi absent; spiracles annular.

The Scaritinae are a diverse group of ground beetles with body forms commonly modified for digging. Members of the group have the fore coxal cavities closed behind and the mid coxal cavities laterally open. The tribe Clivinini includes relatively small forms with a prominent, setiform unguitractor plate on the tarsus, whereas members of the Scaritini have a much smaller plate and tend to be much larger in overall size (Ball & Bousquet 2001).

Pseudomorphini

Graphipterus serrator, copyright Hectonichus.


Belongs within: Harpalinae.
Contains: Adelotopus, Sphallomorpha.

The Pseudomorphini are a group of often flattened ground beetles found living under bark. They are often found in association with ants and larvae of some species are physogastric inquilines in ant nests (Lawrence & Britton 1991). The majority of genera in this group are ovoviviparous (Baehr 2008).

Characters (from Lawrence & Britton 1991): Antennal scape not visible from above; antennae sometimes short and clavate; head with deep antennal sulcus between eye and mandible; legs more or less concealed beneath body, with may be flattened and laterally explanate.
