Published records from the Caribbean

CUBA: Matanzas: Cárdenas (as C. centrimaculatum, Gundlach 1891[4]); without precise locality (as C. centrimaculatum, de la Sagra 1857[5]). JAMAICA: without precise locality (Leng and Mutchler 1917[6]). Trelawny: Good Hope; Duncans (Fikáček 2009[2]). DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Pedernales: 4 km W of Oviedo (Fikáček 2009[2]). GUADELOUPE: without precise locality (Leng and Mutchler 1914[7]); Peck et al. 2014[8]). MONTSERRAT: without precise locality (Peck et al. 2014[8]).

Diagnosis

Body size 1.0–2.1 mm; dorsal surface of head black; pronotum (Fig. 3d) reddish brown, rarely with a vaguely darker central area; elytra uniformly reddish-brown, rarely with a vaguely darker central area; mesoventral plate (Fig. 13c) narrow, ca. 6× as long as wide; metaventrite (Fig. 13d) with complete femoral lines; first abdominal ventrite without spiniform process of both sexes; apex of fifth ventrite without a triangularly bulged projection in both sexes; aedeagus with parameres twice as long as phallobase (Fig. 6i), median lobe (Fig. 6j) continuously acuminate, with long narrowly acute apex, without spines.
This species was assigned to C. nigriceps group (= C. atricapillus group) by Smetana (1978)[3]. Cercyon nigriceps can be distinguished from other species in the region by its small size and the presence of complete femoral lines on the metaventrite. It may be confused with representatives of the genus Oosternum by the small body size and coloration, but differs from them by presence of femoral lines (absent in Oosternum), absence of anterolateral ridge on mesoventrite (present in all Oosternum) and by very narrow mesoventral plate (1.7–2.8× as long as wide in Oosternum, see Deler-Hernández et al. 2014[9]).

Distribution

This is an adventive species currently distributed in all zoogeographical regions. In Greater Antilles widespread in all islands: Cayman Islands, Cuba (Artemisa, Cienfuegos, Guantánamo, Holguín, Matanzas, Santiago de Cuba; Gundlach 1891[4]), Dominican Republic (La Altagracias, La Vega, Monte Cristi, Samaná, San Pedro de Macoris; this paper), Haiti (Artibonite, this paper), Jamaica (Trelawny; Fikáček 2009[2]) and Puerto Rico (Naguabo, Arecibo, Cabo Rojo). It is also widespread in the Lesser Antilles (Antigua, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; this paper) (Fig. 16b). Based on the record by de la Sagra (1857)[5], the species was introduced to the Greater Antilles no later than the first half of the 19th century.

Biology

A terrestrial species collected in cow and horse dung and in decaying plant matter (e.g., compost piles). It is also frequently collected at light.
