Frolov, A.V. 2002. A Review of Aphodiines of the Subgenus Chilothorax Motschulsky, Genus Aphodius Illiger (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae), from Russia and Neighboring Countries. Entomological Review, 82(1): 1–18. PDF (662.9 KB)
Abstract — Representatives of the genus Aphodius Ill., subgenus Chilothorax Motsch., of Russia and adjacent countries are reviewed. A key to the species and notes on their synonymy and distribution are given. Two little known species (A. variicolor D. Kosh. and A. balachanicola Balth.) are redescribed and a new species, A. xanthellus sp. n., is described. Three new synonymies (A. clausula W. Kosh., 1910 = A. gussakovskii Sem. et Medv., 1929, syn. n.; A. grafi Reitter, 1902 = A. kryzhanovskii Nikritin, 1969, syn. n.; = A. schutovae Nikritin, 1969, syn. n.) are established.
