Abstract

The Trogidae represent an ancient, monophyletic lineage of keratin-feeding Scarabaeoidea, the only group in the superfamily to do so and one of few insect groups capable of digesting keratin (Scholtz & Chown 1995). Trogids are a relatively small (300 species) cosmopolitan family comprising three genera, Fabricius, 1775, Erichson, 1847, and Burmeister, 1876.
