CAMERO - R., Edgar. Diversity of dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) of the northern zone from Serranía de La Lindosa, Guaviare-Colombia. Acta biol.Colomb. [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.2, pp.311-321. ISSN 0120-548X.

Faunal composition of the coprophagous beetles was studied in four sampling sites in the northern area from the Serranía de La Lindosa in Guaviare, testing diversity values and structure of the assemblages that were compared with other research done in any other areas of Biogeographical Guyana. The results showed low diversity values, typical of areas with low availability of resources and extreme climatic conditions and showed the predominance of species with nesting digging habit over resident and rolling species. The fauna composition presents a large number of common species with any other areas of the region, as occur as other affinities found for other taxa that support the links of these Colombian mountains to the Guyanese and Brazilian shields.
