BURKE, A.F. et al. Additions and contributions for the genus Enoclerus Gahan (Coleoptera: Cleridae) on temperate climate forests of Mexico. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.1, pp. 145-167. ISSN 0065-1737.
By means of the usage of Lindgren traps laced with frontaline and other baits, placed on 12 different temperate forest climate localities throughout Mexico, there were obtained six species of the genus Enoclerus (Coleoptera: Cleridae: Clerinae), A general diagnosis and key for these species is presented. The members of this genus are very important natural predators of bark and ambrosia beetles. A genus-level integrated analysis is presented for each of the capturing sites. The analysis involved all captured insects. Prominent among the captured beetles were E. ablusus, E. arachnodes, E erro due to its abundance and the number of localities on which those were present, whereas E. aethiops, E. moestus and E. nigricans are sparsely represented, both in number and collected localities. New distributional records are reported for all the collected species.
