          Abstract

          Oruscatus opalescens (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae: Phanaeini) es un escarabajo coprófago, de distribución neotropical, que se encuentra ocasionalmente en colecciones y del cual se conoce muy poco su biología. En este estudio se reunió la información disponible sobre esta especie, a través del inventario de los ejemplares disponibles en colecciones entomológicas, incluyendo los de colecta reciente, y revisión de literatura. Se examinaron 107 ejemplares de nueve colecciones; 73 fueron de Colombia, 29 de Ecuador, y cinco de procedencia incierta. El rango altitudinal de la especie se estableció entre los 2.000 a 3.000 m, en el cual se asocia al estiércol, en especial de grandes mamíferos domésticos y silvestres.

          Translated abstract

          Oruscatus opalescens (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae: Phanaeini), is the dung beetle species scarcely found in collections and very few is known about its biology. This study summarizes the available information about this species, through inventory of specimens in collections, including those more recently collected, and literature review. One hundred-seven specimens were found, in nine collections: 73 from Colombia, 29 from Ecuador and five of unknown origin. An altitudinal range of the species was established between 2,000 and 3,000 m, especially associated to large domestic and wild mammals.
