摘要This study is a supplement to the fauna of Rhipiceridae in Taiwan. In addition to the three documented Sandalus species, we added an undetermined species from Kinmen Island. Rooted in specimen examination, observation, citizen science, and literature, the present study aims to yield a better understanding on the distribution and phenology of each species. Biological notes based on collectors’ observation are provided whenever possible. The available data revealed that Sandalus sauteri sauteri Emden has two seasonal occurrences: spring to early summer and fall while other species have a single seasonal occurrence or show no clear pattern due to insufficient data. A number of S. sauteri sauteri were found and collected concurrently in a water tank in southern Taiwan in the early October, 2021. All 24 individuals are exclusively male, and may had drowned not long before being collected. It is likely that they were attracted to the water tank by the reflective polarized light while flying in the forest. The new finding suggests an emergence peak of S. sauteri sauteri in early October, which is later than the local cicada seasons and may not overlap with the latter. The phenomenon observed is largely congruent with the behavioral ecology of the Nearctic Sandalus niger Knoch.
