Abstract: A recent survey of the water beetle fauna of Pulau Tioman revealed 11 species of the families Noteridae, Dytiscidae, Hydrophilidae, Hydraenidae, Scirtidae and Limnichidae. All identified species (Canthydrus flammulatus, Lacconectus krikkeni, Lacconectus corayi, Sternolophus rufipes, Helochares fuliginosus, Oocyclus sumatrensis tiomanensis and Amphiops coomani) are widespread in the Indo-Malayan region. The small size of the island, presence of few lentic habitats, the steep and fast flowing streams are responsible for the lack of a rich aquatic beetle fauna. The distributional range and ecology are discussed for each species. © National University of Singapore.
