Abstract [en]

During archaeological excavations on the site of the Norse farm at Gården under Sandet (GUS), inAmeralik Fjord, south-west Greenland, the opportunity was taken to sample the modern groundlivinginsect fauna by pitfall trapping from a range of natural habitats for comparison with fossilassemblages from the medieval farm and its midden. Two species, the predatory bug Nabisflavomarginatus Scholtz, 1847 and small ladybird Nephus redtenbacheri Mulsant, 1846 are recordedfor the first time in this part of Greenland, although there are earlier records from the sedimentsassociated with medieval farms in the region and both have been regarded as Norse introductions. Theminute staphylinid Mycetoporus nigrans Mäklin, 1853, added to the Greenland list from this materialby Peter Hammond (in Buckland et al. 1998), was found to be common in most natural habitatsaround GUS. Grids of eight traps, four at ground level and four on posts, were set out in six localitiesdefined by their vegetational characteristics and emptied three times over the month-long samplingperiod. The cicadellid Psammotettix lividellus (Zetterstedt, 1840) appeared in all ground traps beingparticularly abundant on the dwarf birch and sedge dominated floodplain, to which the polyphagousmirid bug Chlamydatus pullus (Reuter, 1870) appears confined.
