Title: Carabid fauna of the Beregi-síkság and its biogeographical relations (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
Year: 1997
Volume: 58
Pages: 73-82.

Abstract: Carabid fauna was studied in eight forests of the Beregi-síkság, both in Hungary and in the Ukraine using pitfall traps. 5092 individuals belonging to 54 species were collected. We found three species of which no data have been known from the Great Hungarian Plain so far. Two of them are characteristic of hills and mountains: Carabus intricatus Linnaeus, 1761, Abax parallelus (Duftschmid, 1812) and the third one is a mountainous species: Cychrus caraboides (Linnaeus, 1758). Three other species were also collected, which have been found only in one locality in the Great Hungarian Plain so far. They are: Molopspiceus (Panzer, 1793), a characteristic species of hills and mountains, Carabus arcensis carpathus Born, 1902, a mountainous species and Blethisa multipunctata (Linnaeus, 1758). We pointed out the most remote northwesterlylocality of Carabus hampei ormayi Reitter, 1896. Dacian and Carpathian relations of the studied area are supported by the species composition of the carabid fauna. The Carpathian relations are also demonstrated by multivariate methods.
