Abstract

Based on an examination of the collection of the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., seven species of Silphidae (Coleoptera) were collected on Plummers Island, Maryland, from 1905 to 2004. This is 38.8% of the known silphid fauna of Maryland. The most commonly collected species is the habitat- and carrion-generalist Nicrophorus tomentosus Weber.
