Occurrence dataset for Neotropical species of Bolitogyrus (Insecta: Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
This occurrence dataset contains the underlying data for: "A revision of the Neotropical species of Bolitogyrus Chevrolat, a geographically disjunct lineage of Staphylinini (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae)". It contains 697 specimen records for the rarely collected rove beetle genus Bolitogyrus and encompasses all available, identifiable records from insect collections worldwide.
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 697 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.

|Title||Revision of the Neotropical species of Bolitogyrus Chevrolat, a geographically disjunct lineage of Staphylinini (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae)|
|Funding||Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Natural History Museum of Denmark, Carlsberg Foundation, Ernst Mayr Foundation|
|Study Area Description||Occurrence data for the taxonomic revision are derived from specimens collected from southern Mexico to Ecuador. Specimen ages range from historical (1800s) to recent (2012).|
The personnel involved in the project:
Specimens were requested from all major Insect Collections with significant neotropical beetle collections. Several other collections were visited in person by the first author (AJB).
|Study Extent||Specimen data includes records from southern Mexico to Ecuador.|
|Quality Control||All specimens were identified by the first author (AJB) in the context of a modern taxonomic revision.|
Method step description:
- All specimens were identified by the first author (AJB) in the context of a modern taxonomic revision.
|Purpose||This dataset contains the underlying specimen data for the taxonomic revision: A revision of the Neotropical species of Bolitogyrus Chevrolat, a geographically disjunct lineage of Staphylinini (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae)|
