MORON, Miguel Ángel; ARAGON, Agustín; TAPIA-ROJAS, Ana María  e  ROJAS-GARCIA, Raúl. Coleoptera lamellicornia de la Sierra del Tentzo, Puebla, México. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2000, n.79, pp.77-102. ISSN 2448-8445.

Preliminary analysis of the scarab beetle fauna of the mountains of Tentzo, Puebla, Mexico is presented. Data were obtained during 1996-1997 with 92 days of collecting effort in oak forest, deciduous tropical forest and thorn shrubs, between 2,000-2,350 m altitude. Records of 8 subfamilies, 14 tribes and 49 species of the genera Phyllophaga, Diplotaxis, Anomala, Ligyrus, Golofa, Strategus, Xyloryctes, Euphoria, Canthon, Sisyphus, Phanaeus, Coprophanaeus, Dichotomius, Onthophagus, Euoniticellus, Ochodaeus, Aphodius, Ataenius and Trox are included. Specific diversity is concentrated in the genera Phyllophaga (12 spp.) and Diplotaxis (9 spp.). Phyllophaga ravida (Blanch.) was the most abundant species in the samples. Golofa tepaneneca Morón is confirmed as an endemic species for these mountains. Sisyphus submonticolus Howden and Euoniticellus intermedius Reiche are cited for the first time in the state of Puebla. The scarab beetle fauna of Tentzo area shows equilibrate similarity with the Puebla valley (27%) and the Balsas river upper slopes (21 %), while the similarity with the Gulf of Mexico slopes is much lower (8 %).
