Scarabaeidae family

Click Here
Although many species belong to the family of Scarabaeidae, most beetles that are collected are usually known under their respective sub-family names such as Cetoniinae (Flower Beetles) and Rutelinae (Leaf beetles). The rest is categorized under Scarabaeidae due to the fact that it is not widely commercially collected among collectors because of its lack of size, shape or color. (Example: Pleocomidae, Glaresidae, Glaphyridae, Ochodaeidae, Bolboceratidae). However, one genus stand out. Some members such as the Phaneus genus (Dung beetles) are beautiful insects with vibrant colors and horns and can rival the most beautiful of jewel scarabs.

One interesting fact is that the Egyptian Scarab that is worshiped by the Ancient Egyptian is actually a …dung beetle.
