Abstract

Alticini species composition, richness and abundance were studied comparatively in four different habitats with different floristic characteristics chosen from Bafa Lake Natural Park. The study was conducted regularly at 15-day intervals during 2012 and 2013. A total of 480 individuals belonging to 10 genera and 55 species of Alticini were collected. Among them Longitarsus aeruginosus (Foudras, 1860) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) was determined as new record for the Alticini fauna of Turkey and is presented with related figures. According to Shannon-Wiener, Simpson and Berger-Parker indices of diversity, Meadow area 1 (MA1) was detected as the most diverse habitat. Jaccard and Bray-Curtis similarity indices showed that Alticini communities in Olive grove area 1 (OGA1) and Meadow area 1 (MA1) were more closely related. Data gathered from regular samplings were also displayed by graphics obtained from analyses of Rarefaction and Abundance plot k-dominance. The reasons affecting species diversity of areas were discussed.
