>Hi All,
>in a work in preparation we would like to give in a few sentences a short review on non-feeding scarab adults.
>Could you guys give us a help to make this thing more complete?
>There are in literature some vague statements such as this of Ritcher (1958) and Scholtz (1990) about nonfeeding Rutelinae and Dynastinae, for which I could find so far no precise data on taxa and references. Maybe I have overlooked other references…

>In order to avoid notification already known to us, I attached below the list I could make so far…

>Thanks to all in advance who may help!

>ps. Do we have this pattern (i.e., nonfeeding of adult specimens) also among dung beetle lineages (Aphodiinae/ Scarabaeinae)?
