Dr. Scholtz, There are many aphodiine scarabs in scattered groups that are known to be myrmecophiles or termitophiles. However, I do not know of any single reference discussing them all. There are only scattered bits of literature and revisions where the associations are mentioned. Paul ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Paul E.
