CHECKLIST OF DRYINIDAE, EMBOLEMIDAE AND SCLEROGIBBIDAE OF KENYA
The checklists of the Dryinidae, Embolemidae and Sclerogibbidae of Kenya and Burundi presented in this paper include 39 species of Dryinidae, four species of Embolemidae and 12 species of Sclerogibbidae known from Kenya; two species of Dryinidae, three species of Embolemidae and one species of Sclerogibbidae known from Burundi.
Table 1 summarizes data on the geographic distribution of currently known Kenyan species of Dryinidae, Embolemidae and Sclerogibbidae. Ten (26 %) of the Kenyan dryinid species are restricted to Eastern Africa, all but two of these Kenyan endemics.
In contrast with the Dryinidae, the Sclerogibbidae were concentrated in the drier habitats of the Eastern, Rift Valley and Nyanza Provinces and were absent from collections in the Central, Coast and Western Provinces, where traps were set primarily in wet forest habitat.
Overall, our recent Malaise trap collections are responsible for 47 % of the 55 species of Dryinidae, Embolemidae and Sclerogibbidae currently known from Kenya.
