AbstractA survey of the flat bark beetles of tropical Florida (Dade, Monroe, Broward, and Collier counties) revealed the presence of 26 species in three families: Laemophloeidae, 14 species; Passandridae, 2 species; Silvanidae, 10 species. Five species are newly recorded for Florida and the United States: Laemophloeus suturalis reitter, Laemophloeus (sens. lat.) permixtus Grouvelle, Laemophloeus (sens. lat.) quinquearticulatus Grouvelle, Monanus concinnulus (Walker), Nausibius sahlbergi Grouvelle, Silvanus lewisi Reitter. One species, Rhabdophloeus horni (Casey), is newly recorded from Florida. Collection localities and data are listed, and faunal affinities are discussed.
