Diagnosis. See Lohse (1974b).

Discussion. The type material of Staphylinus canaliculatus   was not examined but this is a well known European species. The holotype of Dr. cavicollis   agrees completely with European specimens of Dr. canaliculata   in external characters and the shape of the aedeagus, including the sclerites and diverticula of the internal sac ( Figs. 155–156 View FIGURES 155–156 ).

Distribution. In North America Dr. canaliculata   is known from New York ( Muona 1984), Ontario, Québec, Kentucky and Alaska and appears to be to be an introduction from Eurasia. In Europe and Siberia Dr. canaliculata   is a common species in natural habitats. The fact that the only known Alaskan specimen is known from Sitka and Dr. canaliculata   was never collected again anywhere in Alaska, despite numerous collecting trips by Smetana, Campbell and myself, suggests that this species was introduced to Sitka by early Russian colonists, perhaps in ship ballast and never was established in continental Alaska. In eastern North America Dr. canaliculata   appears to be restricted to disturbed habitats. This fact also supports the introduction hypothesis.
