Taxonomic revision of Mordellistena hirtipes species-complex with new distributional records (Insecta, Coleoptera, Mordellidae)
The present dataset contains occurrences of specimens examined for the purpose of a taxonomic revision of the Mordellistena hirtipes species-complex. Data for all type specimens of Mordellistena hisrtipes Schilsky, 1895, M. pseudohirtipes Ermisch, 1965 and M. purpurascens Costa, 1854 are included.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 147 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

|Study Extent||Europe, Africa, Asia|
Method step description:
- Dried specimens were relaxed in water with few drops of acetic acid to allow the dissection. Specimens were observed using Leica MZ16 stereomicroscope with magnification up to 120×, illuminated with diffuse light (neon bulb, 6400 K). Specimens were identified by the comparison wit the types.
