... Larvae of numerous taxa are unknown or inadequately described and these taxa were scored as unknown for all or some larval characters. A predatory diving water beetle that feeds on feeds upon small invertebrates such as Daphnia, Mosquito larvae and other small vertebrate species, it has an almost worldwide distribution but primarily in North Western Europe and the UK. The larval period varies between species, but can be as long as several years. In the present study, an evaluation of the role of the larvae of Acilius sulcatus Linnaeus 1758 (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae) as predator of mosquito immatures was made in the laboratory. Acilius sulcatus has developed specific chemoreceptors that distinguish between kairomones released by hungry and satiated perch (2). Above : Activity (m moved within 2 h) for Acilius sulcatus in the different treatments in Scientific synonyms. The larvae of skin beetles undergo a degree of reversed development when starved, and later grow back to the previously attained level of maturity.

Fig. Acilius larvae are continuously swim-ming predators that seek prey visually, and in that study had the highest encounter rate and selectivity for large pelagic cladocerans (Daphnia pulex De Geer). The larvae are rather small and are easily identifiable by their relatively long neck. Acilius sulcatus reaches some 16 to 18 mm in size and it is not capable of biting humans. }, abstractNote = {We describe how, within the temperate, deciduous forests of the eastern US, diverse soil-fauna communities are structured by a combination … Knowing the level of predatory danger in the environment increases the chance of survival as well as lowering unnecessary high energy retreats.
