Abstract

The distribution of Minthea rugicollis worldwide is presented based on a compilation of literature records of population establishments and also from the world collection of M. rugicollis at the Natural History Museum, London. The distribution map derived indicates the limits of distribution for M. rugicollis to be 40° north and south of the Equator, with maximum distribution within 20° north and south. The present compiled records of occurrence of established populations as well as reports on repeated accidental introductions strongly suggest M. rugicollis is not capable of establishing populations under outdoor temperate conditions. Taburan Minthea rugicollis di seluruh dunia dipaparkan berdasarkan kepustakaan taburan populasi danjuga daripada koleksi sedunia M. rugicollis yang terdapat di Natural History Museum, London. Peta taburan yang diperoleh menunjukkan taburan spesies ini terhad di antara 40° utara dan selatan Khatulistiwa, dengan taburan maksimum di antara 20° utara dan selatan. Rekod berkaitan taburan populasi yang disusun ini berserta dengan laporan kemasukan berulang serangga yang berlaku secara tidak sengaja memberi kesimpulan bahawa M. rugicollis tidak berupaya untuk mengekalkan populasinya dalam iklim suhu sederhana.
