Since everybody is talking Melinopterus, if anybody has Melinopterus in EtOH or the chance of collecting them, I am still looking for:

punctatosulcatus (continental Europe)
prodromus from Eastern Europe or the Levant

material can be returned after extraction.

Hi all,


I am working on a short note on Aphodius/Melinopterus prodromus, a European immigrant dung beetle species, in North and South Dakota, USA. If anybody has Melinopterus specimens (whatever species - prodromus, femoralis, consentaneus) from the Dakotas, please let me know. I might like to see them. Thanks.
