Megalodontes Latreille, 1802

TARPA Fabricius, 1804

Notes

If any member of this genus was ever present in England, then only Megalodontes cephalotes seems at all likely: according to Leach (1817) and Stephens (1835) , found near Bristol and Plymouth. See Taeger (2002) for current taxonomy. of the genus.

Species of Megalodontes removed from the British and Irish list:

[ Megalodontes panzeri (Leach, 1817), Megalodontes plagiocephalus (Fabricius, 1804)] Up to three separate Megalodontes species have at times been considered to have been present in England. Neither Megalodontes panzeri nor Megalodontes plagiocephalus , on the basis of their currently known distributions and habitat requirements, probably ever occurred in the British Isles.
