Description

The rainbow scarab is native to and found extensively in, the eastern United States from Massachusetts to South Dakota in the north and Texas to Florida in the south (Woodruff 1973). The Florida Keys and the Everglades are the only regions in Florida where the rainbow scarab has not been found (Woodruff 1973).

Life Cycle
Based on nest construction behavior, there are three
types of dung beetles: tunnelers (paracoprids), dwellers (endocoprids), and rollers (telecoprids). Phanaeus vindex
is an example of a tunneler (Ratcliffe et al. 2002). In tun- neling species, both sexes create a tube by excavating the soil underneath the dung pat, culminating in a chamber below the surface of the dung pat (Figure 5). The tunneling excavations bring subsurface soil, called soilcasts, to the ground’s surface. The brood ball is made underneath the dung pat (Ratcliffe et al. 2002). The brood ball consists of moist dung coated with soil to serve as food for the larva and young adult (Bertone et al. 2004). The ball of dung is pulled into the tunnel, a few centimeters below ground, and formed into brood, or feeding balls. The tunnels are filled with loose soil to protect the brood ball at the bottom of the tunnel (Bertone et al. 2006). Because tunnelers bring the dung underground, the tunnelers are the most sought after dung beetles for dung degradation (Kaufman and Wood 2012).
