Two small beetle collections from Saba (Coleoptera)
In January and February 2009 the third and fourth authors visited
Saba to sample the invertebrate fauna of tank bromeliads. They also
collected a small number of beetles during visits to the island in
October 2008 and October 2009. The second author paid a visit to Saba
in December 2019 and January 2020 to study red-billed tropicbirds.
During this stay he also collected several beetles and other invertebrates.
The two small beetle collections were identified by the first author.
Two specimens were identified to subfamily level, three to genus
level, two provisionally and fifteen to species level. Fourteen of the
taxa identified to genus or species level are new to Saba or constitute
confirmations of earlier provisional records for the island, four of these
are even new to the Dutch Antilles.
