New distribution record of Coelosis biloba Linnaeus, 1767 (Scarabaeidae: Dynastinae: Oryctini) in Córdoba, northern Colombia

Abstract


We report Coelosis biloba for the rainforest of the buffer zone of Paramillo Natural National Park, south of Córdoba. The specimen was collected at night, in a mist net to catch bats. This represents a new location for the distribution of this species in Córdoba and the sixth record for the northern coast of Colombia. The few records of this species in northern Colombia compared to other regions of the country are due to lack of studies in biodiversity and the absence of entomological collections at universities on the Caribbean coast.
