Analyse des vermoulures pour la détermination de quelques espèces d'Insectes xylophages de la famille des Ptinidae (Coleoptera)

Abstract : Analysis of larval frass for identification of wood boring insects of the family Ptinidae (Coleoptera). Among xylophagous insects of the family Ptinidae, the common furniture beetle Anobium punctatum (Degeer, 1774), with a worldwide distribution, is the most commonly found species in heritage sites and places. Besides, other species like the furniture beetle Oligomerus ptilinoides (Wollaston, 1854) and the library beetle Nicobium castaneum (Olivier, 1790), are often found in the same places. They all cause extensive damage to various objects, and the traces they leave (flight holes, size and shape of their excrement, presence or absence of pupae, etc.) differ among species. This study presents a comparative, morphological and statistical approach for studying the clues left by these three species so as to differentiate and identify them in the absence of larvae or imagoes.
