Sarophorus bidentatus (Scarabaeidae, Scarabaeinae)

Sarophorus bidentatus can be separated from other Sarophorus species by the protruding anterior angles of the clypeus with relatively long setae on the dorsal surface, the absence of the concavities on the base of the propleura, the bunch of apical setae on the ventral side of the middle tibia, and the internal sac of the aedeagus being armed with asymmetrical sclerites. The females of S. bidentatus can be distinguished from S. tuberculatus females by the absence of propleural fossae in the former species.
