Pavlíček, T., Chikatunov, V., Kravchenko, V., Zahradník, P. and Nevo, E. 1999: New records of deathwatch beetles (Anobiidae) from Israel. Zool. Middle East 17: 77-78.
Four species of deathwatch beetles (Anobiidae) new for the Israeli fauna were found in the "Evolution Canyon", Lower Nahal Oren, Mt. Carmel. The species were: Gastralus laevi gatus, Xyletinus wewalkai, Priartobium serrifunis, and Stagetus elongatus. The number of known deathwatch beetles in Israel has thus risen to 27, but this is far from the final number.
