Abstract

The knowledge about tiger beetle fauna of the Northern Mindanao region (Philippines) is summarized based on literature data and new records. Thirty species classified in ten genera ( Tricondyla , Neocollyris , Protocollyris , Therates , Prothyma , Heptodonta , Thopeutica , Lophyra , Calomera , and Cylindera ) were documented from the area (56% of tiger beetle fauna of Mindanao and 21% of Philippine species). Twelve species were noted from Northern Mindanao region for the first time, including five taxa, Neocollyris speciosa , Calomera angulata , Cylindera minuta , Lophyra striolata tenuiscripta , and Thopeutica virginea , not recorded from Mindanao before. Distribution maps for all recorded species and the first photographs of habitats for some species in Mindanao and/or in the Philippines are provided. Eight species (27% of recorded fauna) were noted from riverine habitats while 18 tiger beetles (60%) were typical forest taxa; in the case of four species, their habitats in Northern Mindanao region are not known.
