Additional Species

Stored-Product Insect Resource book listed 1663 species of stored-product insects (Table 1.1). There were an additional 301 species which were reported in the literature to be associated with stored products but the commodity or facility with which they were associated was not specified (Table 1.6). Atlas of Stored-Product Insects and Mites book had photographs of 230 of these stored-product insect species and 5 additional insect species, and information on 280 species of stored-product mites. Wang et al. 2008 published photographs of 172 stored product insect species associated with stored grain in China (32 of these species were not in Stored Product Insect Resource book and photographs of 85 of these species were not in Atlas of Stored-Product Insects and Mites book). Adding the following 77 species to the list of stored-product insects and mites makes a total of 2326 species. The majority were Coleoptera (59) and parasitic Hymenoptera (8) and most were additional species in genera already included in the books. Some are crop pests that go into storage with crop.
