Brief SummaryRead full entry
Coprochara is one of the few subgenera in the present subgeneric system of Aleochara which are well-supported monophyletic lineages. Twenty-eight species are currently described (one doubtful species is indicated with a "?" in the species list). Coprochara occurs in all biogeographic regions except the Australian and the Antarctic Region. In the Oriental Region, only few species, which are of mainly Palaearctic distribution, occur in India and China. Because of external similarity, the extraordinary infraspecific variability of the species, and the incorrectly assumed similarity of their male genitalia, Coprochara has always been judged to be one of the most difficult groups within Aleochara.
