Onthophagus manantlanensis Sánchez-Huerta, Moctezuma & Hernández, a new species is described from Jalisco, Mexico. Onthophagus manantlanensis is similar in morphology to O. villanuevai. Consequently, the new species is preliminarily included within the O. clypeatus species group. The new O. manantlanensis, along with O. villanuevai, O. nasutus Guér...

The Onthophagus chevrolati Harold, 1869 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae: Onthophagini) species complex was recently studied, and a majority of its species were newly described or redescribed (see Moctezuma & Halffter 2020). Onthophagus viridichevrolati Moctezuma & Halffter, 2020 was the only species within the O. chevrolati species complex...

Abstract. Deltochilum burmeisteri Harold, 1867 has been considered as a junior subjective synonym of D. mexicanum Burmeister, 1848 for almost 8 decades. Nevertheless, D. burmeisteri is resurrected herein from previous synonymy based on the revision of the external and genital morphology. The lectotype for D. burmeisteri, a female specimen, is desig...

Los inventarios de artropodofauna en el estado de Hidalgo, en particular del orden Coleoptera, son escasos. En este estudio se evaluó la diversidad de coleópteros en un matorral xerófilo del municipio de Metzitlán, Hidalgo. Los ejemplares fueron recolectados de manera directa, o mediante redes entomológicas, necrotrampas, trampas de intercepción de...

Two new species of Canthidium Erichson, 1847 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae) from Mexico are described: Canthidium nebularum Moctezuma, Sánchez-Huerta, and Halffter, new species; and C. chimalapense Moctezuma and Halffter, new species. An updated key for the North American species is included, with a brief discussion on taxonomic and bioge...

In this study, we take the Onthophagus chevrolati species group, likely a monophyletic species group as an example to analyze the processes that led to the biogeographic integration of the Holarctic fauna in the mountains of the Mexican Transition Zone to test our biogeographic hypotheses. We propose a change from the status of subspecies to specie...

Vindex chimalapensis Ariza-Marín, Reyes-Castillo, Moctezuma & Sánchez-Huerta, a new species, is described from the cloud forest in Oaxaca, México. Vindex chimalapensis is like V. sculptilis Bates in the form of lateral elytral punctures and glabrous epipleura, but has dorsal punctures in the pronotum and the form of the aedeagus differs on the basa...

Onthophagus skelleyi Sánchez-Huerta, Zunino, and Halffter, new species, of the chevrolati species-group, hippopotamus line and complex, is described and illustrated. To the best of our knowledge, all of the species in this complex are associated with rodent (Geomyidae) burrows. The new species was found in northern Querétaro, Mexico, in the northea...

Onthophagus Latreille is a hyperdiverse genus of dung beetles that has ≈2200 described species. Onthophagus in the Americas has been divided into seven species groups: chevrolati, clypeatus, gazellinus, hircus, landolti, mexicanus and dicranius. The chevrolati species group is characteristic of the mountains of the Mexican Transition Zone and is di...

Two new species of the genus Ateuchus Weber are described from the region of Los Chimalapas, Oaxaca, Mex-ico: A. benitojuarezi sp. n. and A. colossus sp. n. A diagnosis for distinguishing these new species from the other species of this genus in North America is included. This paper is illustrated with pictures of the dorsal habitus and the male ge...

Phanaeus bravoensis sp. n. is described from the coniferous-oak forests in the state of Guerrero, and P. huichol sp. n. from coniferous-oak forests and cloud forests in Jalisco and Nayarit. The new species are closely related to P. halffterorum and P. zoque respectively. Morphological trait combination, geographic distribution, and trophic habits s...

Onthophagus halffteri Zunino was originally described based on a single specimen (a hypertelic male), the only one known at that time. The capture of several series with an abundance of individuals allows us to now describe hypertelic (major), eutelic (medium), and hypotelic (minor) males and females. Additionally, the assignment of O. halffteri to...

Project
Providing taxonomical, distributional, and natural history data for New World scarab beetles. This project is mainly focused on, but not limited to Scarabaeinae dung beetles from Mexico and Mesoamerica.
Project
Studying taxonomy, ecology, and biogeography of dung and carrion beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea and Silphidae) from the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt.
Project
A multifaceted approach to understand the diversity of scarab beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea) communities, biased to dung beetles of tropical and temperate forests from Los Chimalapas, the most biodiverse region of Mexico and Centroamerica. The Alpha Taxonomy, Historical Biogeography, Phylogenetic and Traditional Ecology and Land-use change effects are revisited.
