Dermestes erichsoni Ganglbauer, 1903 – a rare forest species. Low population density D. erichsoni can be explained by the peculiarities of its biology. To date, not much is known of works devoted to the biology of this species (1-9). In view of these circumstances, our objective was to study the biology and ecology: population, habitat, relations D. erichsoni.
