Differentiation between Onthophagus similis Scriba and Onthophagus opacicollis Reitter (Col., Scarabaeidae)



Differentiation between Onthophagus similis Scriba and Onthophagus opacicollis Reitter (Col., Scarabaeidae)



Graellsia 1986; 41: 31-42



It has recently been suggested that Onthophagus opacicollis is a synonym of O. similis. The author reviews the taxonomic history of these beetles (together with O. fracticornis), briefly discusses the internal and external morphology of O. similis and O. opacicollis and describes in detail their distribution in Spain, Portugal and southern France and their phenology.
