Abstract

Data from literature were used to compile a checklist of the Egyptian fauna of the water scavenger beetles (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae). The checklist includes data on the type localities, references in which the species are described in detail, world and Egyptian distribution, and other references for 51 valid species belonging to 17 genera: Amphiops Erichson, 1843; Anacaena Thomson, 1859; Berosus Leach, 1817; Cercyon Leach, 1817; Chaetarthria Stephens, 1835; Dactylosternum Wollaston, 1854; Enochrus Thomson, 1859; Helochares Mulsant, 1844; Hydrobiomorpha Blackburn, 1888; Hydrochara Berthold, 1827; Hydrophilus Geoffroy, 1762; Laccobius Erichson, 1837; Pachysternum Motschulsky, 1863; Paracymus Thomson, 1867; Regimbartia Zaitzev, 1908; Sphaeridium Fabricius, 1775; and Sternolophus Solier, 1834. The present study provides a summary that can help as the basis for future progress in the knowledge of the Egyptian Hydrophilidae.
