Latest version published by Biodiversity Data Journal on Jan 9, 2018 Biodiversity Data Journal

This data set is the first comprehensive inventory of the cerambycid fauna in the Komaba Campus of the University of Tokyo. The campus contains a relatively small green space surrounded by a highly urbanised area of central Tokyo. Appropriately maintained forests, shrubs and grasslands fill spaces amongst a number of buildings and athletic fields within the campus. Plant-dependent insect assemblages such as Cerambycidae, in particular, are likely influenced by the existence of green spaces in Tokyo’s urbanised environments. The data set includes 62 records covering 25 species of 22 Genera of the family Cerambycidae.

Data Records

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 61 records.

Sampling Methods

Specimens were collected using the following methods: net sweeping, direct observations during daytime and night-time, collecting hosts (collecting and maintaining dead plants until adults emerged from the plants), and insect fogging.

Study Extent Study site is the Komaba Campus (35.66006N, 139.68521E; altitude of approximately 35 m above sea level) of the University of Tokyo, Meguro City, Tokyo, Japan. The total area of the campus is 25.4 ha, of which 4.5 ha consist of approximately 50 buildings and several athletic fields (http://www.c.u-tokyo.ac.jp/info/about/facts/lands/index.html, accessed on 20th March 2016). Comprehensive sampling was conducted at the campus mainly during May 2014− July 2015.
Quality Control Species identification was conducted by J. Yamasako and T. Kato, using Ohbayashi and Niisato (2007). The specimens were preserved in the Insect Collection (IC) at the Komaba Museum, University of Tokyo, Meguro City, Japan (KMUT).

Method step description:

  1. In total, 61 individuals of 25 species of Cerambycidae were recorded at the Komaba Campus. Of these individuals, 27 individuals were captured by net sweeping, 18 individuals were captured by direct observation during daytime and night-time and 1 individual was sampled by insect fogging. Nine individuals were sampled after emerging from the host woods. For one individual, the sampling method was unknown. Three individuals were captured by direct observations around the campus. Two individuals were directly observed on campus.
