Abstract: Survey of saproxylophagous Melolonthidae (Coleoptera) and some biological aspects in Aquidauana, MS. Biota Neotrop. 13(3): http:// www.biotaneotropica.org.br/v13n3/en/abstract?article+bn00813032013Abstract: Coleoptera of the family Melolonthidae plays an important role in decomposition and nutrient recycling in the environment, however the information of this group is scarce in Brazil; therefore studies were developed with the objective of understanding the biological aspects of saproxylophagous. The studies w… Show more

“…They typically have a diurnal habit and can be found feeding on ripe fruits (Morón 1995;Di Iorio 2014) or nectar and pollen (Micó & Galante 1998;Mawdsley et al 2011;Puker et al 2012;Steenhuisen & Johnson 2012;Di Iorio 2014), and are easy to collect using fruit-baited traps (Mudge et al 2012;Touroult & Le Gall 2013;Puker et al 2014;Evangelista Neto et al 2018;Correa et al 2019). The larvae are predominantly saprophagous or saproxylophagous, being frequently found in decaying organic matter, decomposing wood, tree hollows and dry mammal feces (Micó et al 2000(Micó et al , 2011Orozco 2012b;Garcia et al 2013;Oliveira et al 2016;Micó 2018). Some Neotropical species also develop in nests of social insects such as ants and termites (Puker et al 2012, 2015 andreferences therein).…”

“…Macraspis festiva was recorded in the canopy from September to November as well in March. Garcia et al (2013) reported pupae and larvae of this species from rotting logs in Brazil in January-April, August, and November, which indicates a multivoltine life cycle and year-round occurrence. Thus, M. festiva probably fed on non-sampled trees during other months in our study.…”

“…In Brazil, studies have mainly provided descriptions of life stages and species diversity (Vanin & Costa ; Ratcliffe & Deloya ; Micó et al , ; Ratcliffe & Micó ; Gonçalves & Louzada ; Ratcliffe , , ; Orozco ; Puker et al ), and most of these studies were carried out in the Southern and Southeastern regions of the country. Two further studies were carried out in the Midwest region and nine species were reported (Garcia et al ; Rodrigues et al ). However, there is no information about this group in the Cerrado of Central Brazil.…”
