Abstract

This study reports sap beetles from fruits of a coffee crop in Cravinhos, SP, Brazil. Fruits were collected directly from plants and, in laboratory, from the fruits at the cherry state we obtained 20 adults of three species: Carpophilus nepos Murray, 1864,
Colopterus niger Murray, 1864 and Nitops sordidus Erichson, 1847. This is the first report of association between these insects and coffee fruits.
