FURTHER RECORDS OF SCARABAEOIDEA FOUND INSIDE BURROWS OF RODENTS IN IRAN (Coleoptera)
AbstractA list of Scarabaeoids collected in burrows of rodents in Iran is presented. It represents the fourth contribution by the authors aimed at increasing the knowledge of the nidicolous scarab beetles. Aphodius coniugatus (Panzer, 1795) and Phaeaphodius tauricola (Hrubant, 1961) (Aphodiidae) are recorded for the first time from Iran. Original drawings of aedeagus and epipharynx of the latter species are included. A new dichotomic key to the species of the Onthophagus ponticus lineage (Scarabaeidae) is presented.
