Beetles of the Bull Run Mountains

The WBY team of  Evans & Clark discusses the particulars of one of Evans’ latest projects, a beetle survey of the Bull Run Mountains.

Five hundred fifty-five species of beetles in 78 families are known from the area thus far, 72 of which are recorded in Virginia for the first time.

A synoptic collection from the project was presented to the Bull Run Mountains Conservancy for use  in their educational programs.

Additional specimens were deposited in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution and the Virginia Museum of Natural History so that other researchers may have access to the collection data.
