Natural Protected Areas (NPAs) are consider adequate tools for biodiversity conservation. Currently in Mexico there are 182 federal NPAs classified according to their management objectives. Chiapas is the Mexican state with the highest number of decreed NPAs and also allocates one of the largest territorial extensions for its protection. Unlike oth...

The Cañón del Sumidero National Park (PNCS) is a priority area for conservation, but there are few studies on its fauna, which evidences the need for further basic studies to produce adequate knowledge on its biodiversity. This study aimed to determine dung beetle assemblages temporal distribution, trophic preference, and daily activity patterns. W...
Article
This study aimed to investigate the diversity patterns of Scarabaeinae community along an altitudinal gradient under intense anthropogenic pressure in the central region of Chiapas, Mexico, considering the influence of environmental and landscape variables. We sampled dung beetles using baited pitfall traps in four sites located at different altitu...

Insects of the family Neriidae deposited in the Insect Collection of "El Colegio de la Frontera Sur" (Tapachula, México) were revised. Taxonomic revision of 322 specimens provided distributional information about four genera and six species for the state of Chiapas (México). Glyphidops flavifrons (Bigot), Nerius pilifer Fabricius, Nerius plurivitta...

This paper aims to describe a new species of the Onthophagus belorhinus species complex and to provide a modified key to separating the new species from other species in the species complex
Article
Full-text available
Dung beetles of the subfamily Scarabaeinae are often used as focal organisms to assess anthropogenic impacts on biodiversity. The state distribution of Scarabaeinae in Mexico is quite heterogeneous; while some states stand out for their high diversity, others lack records or the available information is scarce and scattered. The present contributio...

Omorgus (Omorgus) suberosus (Fabricius, 1775) is a species of Trogidae whose feeding habits allow them to associate with any source of keratin, including the feces of various omnivorous species; however, it has not been reported in the feces of carnivorous mammals. The objective of this work is to report, for the first time, the attraction of O. su...

New state records of Hydrophilus (Dibolocelus) purpurascens Régimbart, 1901 for Chiapas, and Berosus (Enoplurus) punctatissimus LeConte, 1852 for San Luis Potosí, Mexico are presented. We also include a map with the known geographic distribution of both species.
Article

Mammalian dung represents a primary feeding and reproductive resource for most dung beetle species. Competition for the trophic resource is common among the subfamily Scarabaeinae showing different habits depending on the quantity and quality of food available. In this study, we evaluated the dung of six species of mammal native to Chiapas (Mexico)...
Article

Entre 2017 y 2018 se realizaron muestreos durante cuatro meses en un fragmento de bosque tropical perennifolio de un área natural protegida de Chiapas, México. Se instalaron trampas de caída ubicados a lo largo de un trayecto de aproximadamente 500 m. Las trampas fueron cebadas con individuos recién muertos de Messicobolus magnificus, un milpiés ab...

El Zapotal Recreational Ecological Preserve (CEREZ) is characterized by presenting one of the last remnants of tropical forest in the central region of Chiapas, Mexico. However, the knowledge of some taxa of the reserve is not entirely adequate. In this work the composition and structure, as well as the temporal distribution of the dung beetles tha...

Through systematic sampling during 2017, using baited pitfall traps to capture copronecrophagous scarabaeine beetles in the central region of Chiapas, the first precise location of Onthophagus atriglabrus Howden and Gill, 1987 is recorded. Likewise, the geographic area of distribution in Mexico of Onthophagus anewtoni (Howden and Génier, 2004), whi...

RESUMEN Los escarabajos de la subfamilia Scarabaeinae son considerados importantes para estudios de diversidad biológica y conservación de ecosistemas. Realizan una variedad de funciones y son sensibles a las perturbaciones ambientales. Chiapas es una de las regiones con mayor número de registros de Scarabaeinae en México, pero aún existen extensas...
