Our studies were performed in aquaria and in a fluviarium where the beetles were exposed to water scented by fish. The larval period varies between species, but can be as long as several years. We examined if A. sulcatus could distinguish between hungry and satiated predators (perch, Perca fluviatilis). In the present study, an evaluation of the role of the larvae of Acilius sulcatus Linnaeus 1758 (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae) as predator of mosquito immatures was made in the laboratory. The larvae are rather small and are easily identifiable by their relatively long neck. Scientific synonyms. ... Larvae of numerous taxa are unknown or inadequately described and these taxa were scored as unknown for all or some larval characters.

Acilius sulcatus has developed specific chemoreceptors that distinguish between kairomones released by hungry and satiated perch (2). Knowing the level of predatory danger in the environment increases the chance of survival as well as lowering unnecessary high energy retreats. Acilius sulcatus adolah kumbang dari famili Dytiscidae.
