Bark Beetle Genera of the United States
This tool is designed to help identify bark beetles (Curculionidae: Scolytinae) to the taxonomic level of genus without the need for expertise in the group. Targeted users include APHIS’ pest survey specialists, ports of entry inspectors, other inspection personnel, students, and scientists. A generic focus was adopted due to the complexity and diversity of the group which facilitated a single key integrating all genera occurring in the continental United States.
