MIYAZAKI, Rosina Djunko e DUTRA, Renato Roxo Coutinho. Families of Coleoptera captured with light trap in eight sites of Paraná, Brazil. Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 1995, vol.12, n.2, pp. 321-332. ISSN 0101-8175. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81751995000200010.
Eight geographical areas, considered as representative of the several natural environments wich still exist in Paraná, southern Brazil, were selected for the collection of insects. This data collection formed pan of the "Survey of the Entomological Fauna in Paraná State" (henceforth Profaupar). These areas were sampled using a light trap (Esalq's model) (Silveira-Neto & Silveira 1969) throughout a single year from August, 1986, until July, 1987. The families of Coleoptera captured were analyzed according to Palma's classification.
