Andrey Frolov is interested in systematics, zoogeography, and morphology of Scarabaeoidea as well as in the theory of taxonomy (especially the relationship between classifications based on adult and larval characters) and phylogenetics. His taxonomic research is mostly focused on the Orphninae (worldwide), Aphodiinae (Palearctic Region) and Scarabaeinae (Sarophorus group of genera, Afrotropics and Southern Asia). He is currently studying South American Orphninae at the Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso, Brazil.
