    Dung Beetle - Liatongusgagatinus

    Order: Coleoptera

    Family: Scarabaeidae

    Genus: Liatongus

    Body size: 28 - 40 mm
    Black body color. Head in front of a clear shield-shaped. Chest and back on both sides of the front angle with small horn. Adult mature from May to Aug.

    Distribution: China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma, Nepal and India

    The Dung Beetles are Scarabs belonging to the subfamily Coprinae, and their habit is to collect a ball of dried dung (from cattle or wild ungulates) and to roll it along with their hind legs to a special breeding tunnel dug in the earth. The dung ball is pushed down inside the tunnel and at the end the breeding chamber may contain several dung balls, each with an egg laid alongside it. Some of the balls of dung are used as food for the adults. Usually the female beetle guards the “nest” for some while. But in most species she dies soon after egg-laying.

    The dung beetles include several subfamilies of the large family Scarabaeidae, the scarab beetles. There are thousands of species of dung beetles, occurring worldwide wherever dung is found. Adults range from 2 to over 50 mm in length. Most species are dark colored, but a few have bright patterns or even metallic colors. Many species have distinctive horns or other processes. Some species of dung beetle prefer certain habitats (e.g. grassland or forest) or certain soil types (e.g. sand or clay). Some species feed on dung of only one species of animal, while others are less choosy. Most eat dung, but some scavenge carcasses or feed in decaying vegetation or fungi. Both adults and larvae feed on the food source. Some species shape a brood ball which they roll away to bury, while others simply dig burrows under or near the food and pack it into them. The pictures above show one such brood ball, both whole (upper left) and cut-away to reveal the larva inside.

    As can be expected, dung beetles are found in or near the dung of various animals. Utilization of dung varies between species. The females of some species roll a ball of dung which has been cut from the pat by means of the shovel-like front part of the head and then shaped and compacted into a ball using the stout front legs.
    The ball is rolled away from the dung mass and then buried, either to be eaten by the adult or stored as food for the larva, which hatches out from a single egg laid in the dung.

    Other species excavate a chamber immediately below the dung pat, pack it with dung and lay several eggs in it.
    Eggs are normally laid in special cells or hollows constructed in the dung. The feeding activities of the larvae eventually produce larger hollow dry shells in which they pupate.

    Some of the larger dung beetles (Heliocopris) pack a layer of clay around the dung ball to protect the food source of their prospective larvae. These clay balls can reach the size of a cricket ball and are almost indestructable.
