Abstract

The abundance and diversity of scarabaeid beetles was examined at five
different farming areas in Nepal. Light traps were used to monitor the beetles
for 12 months. A total of 4708 scarabaeid beetles of 29 genera and 77 species
were trapped during the one year duration of this study. The five most common
scarabaeid species in the study areas were Adoretus coronatus Burmeister,
Maladera thomsoni (Brenske), Anomola bilobata Arrow, Holotrichia nigricollis
Brenske and Anomola dimidiata (Hope). They accounted for 58.81% of all
individuals collected. An inventory of scarabaeid beetles associated with the
five different farming areas in Nepal was developed. This data creates a base
for further studies of beetles and for the developement of conservation and
management strategies in Nepal.
