Ecologic and Zoogeographic Characteristics of the Genus Orphilus Er. (Coleoptera: ‎Dermestidae) in Palearctic Zone ‎

Pushkin Sergey Viktorovich, Tsymbal Bohdan Mykhailovych


The article discussed the distribution of species in the Palearctic zone. Long-term observations of species biology were provided. The material will be useful both to entomologists studying the problems of wood decomposition in nature, and to biologists studying the ecological and biological characteristics of beetles participating in the destruction of organic matter.
