Contribution to the study of the piedmontian alte langhe italy population of coprophagic scarabaeids coleoptera scarabaeoidea



Contribution to the study of the piedmontian alte langhe italy population of coprophagic scarabaeids coleoptera scarabaeoidea



Bollettino del Museo di Zoologia dell'Universita di Torino (2): 5-28



A population of coprophagous scarab beetles of a sample area in high Piedmontese Langhe has been studied for over 20 yr. The fauna is composed of 27 spp. among which clearly prevail taxa with almost partially mediterranean present distribution. The taxa feed upon large herbivore dung and are limited to open, often steppe-like or semi-arid environment. From the most recent data and research carried out during 1981, the present population is reduced to only 14 spp., among which are eurytopic and euryphagous or polyphagous taxa. Qualitative and quantitative variation of coprophagous fauna leads to the abandonment of the area by agriculturists, and to changes in the environment. Possible origins of coprophagous scarab beetle populations in the studied area are discussed.
