M.C. MICHAT, M. ARCHANGELSKY & L.A. FERNÁNDEZ: Larval description and chaetotaxic analysis of Gyrinus monrosi MOUCHAMPS, 1957 (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae)
The three larval instars of the Neotropical Gyrinus (Oreogyrinus) monrosi MOUCHAMPS, 1957 (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae) are described and illustrated for the first time including detailed morpho- metric and chaetotaxic analyses of the cephalic capsule, head appendages and legs. Larvae of Gyrinus MÜLLER, 1764 are diagnosed by the following combination of characters: cephalic capsule not constricted at level of occipital region; medial lobe of frontoclypeus with four inconspicuous teeth; presence of a mandibular retinaculum; lacinia broad, indented apically; claws with basoventral spinulae. Larvae of the subgenus Oreogyrinus OCHS, 1935 have the medial hooks of the abdominal segment X slightly longer than the lateral hooks, whereas in the subgenus Neogyrinus HATCH, 1925 the medial hooks are much shorter than the lateral ones. Regarding chaetotaxy, Gyrinus differs from Andogyrus OCHS, 1924 and Dineutus MACLEAY, 1828 in the absence of additional setae on the mandible, the distal position of pore MXg and the presence of seta TR2, from Orectochilus LACORDAIRE, 1835 in the shape of the pretarsal setae PT1 and PT2, and from all other gyrinid genera with known larvae except Aulonogyrus MOTSCHULSKY, 1853 in the presence of a row of robust hook- like additional setae on the dorsointernal margin of the stipes.
M.A. JÄCH, P. MAZZOLDI, S. SHARMA & P. SHARMA: Remarkable cases of diurnal mass aggregations of Oriental species of Orectochilus subg. Patrus AUBÉ (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae)
Remarkable cases of gregarious behavior of several Oriental species of Orectochilus DEJEAN, 1833 subgen. Patrus AUBÉ (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae) are reported from India, Thailand and Indonesia. Terminology and possible causes of gyrinid mass aggregations are briefly discussed. Three types of diurnal aggregations of O. (Patrus) haemorrhous Régimbart, 1902 are described: 1) "terrestrial clusters" (numerous individuals resting motionless and densely packed immediately above the water line), 2) "body rafts" (numerous more or less motionless individuals floating densely packed side by side on the water surface), 3) "surface swarms" (numerous individuals gyrating close together on the water surface). Gyrinid body rafts are here described for the first time.
