    The biology of 2 species of noxious Scarabaeidae from Indonesia, Lepidiota stigma (F.) and Leucopholis rorida (F.), was studied with particular attention to rate of development, sex ratio and female fecundity. In addition, data were obtained on the phenology of the pre-adult and adult stages. A mass-rearing method for both species was developed, and the mortality of the various stages was Cited by: 1.

Comparative studies within Scarabaeoidea. There have been many broadly based comparative studies covering most major structures including antennae (Iablokoff-Khnzorian ), antennal sensilla (Meinecke ), eye (Caveney ), mouthparts (Nel & Scholtz ), prothorax (Hlavac ), coxae (HlavacRitcher c), spiracles (Richer a, b), wing venation (Crowson.

The family Scarabaeidae, as currently defined, consists of o species of beetles worldwide; they are often called scarabs or scarab classification of this family has undergone significant change in recent years.

Several subfamilies have been elevated to family rank (e.g., Pleocomidae, Glaresidae, Glaphyridae, Ochodaeidae, and Geotrupidae), and some reduced to lower : Insecta. Welcome to Family SCARABAEIDAE, an educational web site dedicated to scarab beetles. The family Scarabaeidae is a large and diverse group of beetles with many representatives worldwide.

Get this from a library. Taxonomic revision of Lichnanthe Burmeister with studies on the biology of L. rathvoni (Leconte) (Coleoptera:Scarabaeidae).

[David Craig Carlson] -- The genus Lichnanthe Burmeister contains eight extant and one fossil species which are strictly nearctic in distribution. The subfamily Glaphyrinae, however, is distributed nearly world-wide. The astonishing spectrum of scarabaeine lifestyles makes them an attractive group for studies in entomology and evolutionary biology.

As a result of adaptions to specific food substrates and textures, the mouthparts of dung beetles, particularly the mandible, have undergone considerable evolutionary changes and differ distinctly from the presumptive ancestral conditions of the Coleoptera Cited by: 6.

The scarab beetle subfamily Scarabaeinae consists of species collectively called true dung of the beetles of this subfamily feed exclusively on r, some may feed on decomposing matter including carrion, decaying fruits and fungi. Dung beetles can be placed into three structural guilds based on their method of dung processing namely rollers, dwellers and tunnelers Dung Class: Insecta.

Included within each family treatment are an introduction, keys to all taxa, descriptions, distributions, diagnosis, notes on biology, illustrations, and maps for all species.

Overview of the biology of the dung beetle tribe of Sisyphini (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae) BY Gimo Daniel Febru Dung beetles in the tribe Sisyphini represent some of the most charismatic members of the subfamily Scarabaeinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae), notable for their distinctive dung-rolling behaviour.

The family Scarabaeidae includes dung beetles, June beetles, rhinoceros beetles, chafers, and flower scarabs. What Are Scarab Beetles. Most scarab beetles are robust, convex insects with brown or black coloring. Whatever the coloration, size, or shape, scarabs share a key common feature: lamellate antennae that can be closed tightly.
