          Abstract

          Resumen Los escarabajos de la subfamilia Scarabaeinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) son un grupo importante utilizado en estudios de taxonomía, ecología, biodiversidad, conservación e historia natural, por ser buenos indicadores de la calidad del hábitat y ricos en géneros y especies. Su taxonomía es relativamente bien conocida; sin embargo, comúnmente se registran nuevos taxones y cambios nomenclaturales, principalmente por revisiones a nivel de género. Actualmente, en el neotrópico se han registrado 127 taxones (entre géneros y subgéneros), de los cuales 59 taxones pertenecientes a 33 géneros y 220 especies (con 22 nuevos registros) se reconocen en Ecuador y otros nueve géneros podrían llegar a ser registrados. Con el objetivo de fomentar el estudio y el conocimiento de este grupo en Ecuador, en este trabajo se presenta una clave de identificación de géneros y subgéneros presentes y/o presuntos para el país, la cual incluye taxones actuales según nuevas publicaciones para el neotrópico de Scarabaeinae.

          Translated abstract

          Abstract The beetles of the Subfamily Scarabaeinae are a group that have been used in taxonomic, ecological, natural history, biodiversity and conservation studies recently, as they are good indicators of habitat quality and due to their great genera and species richness. Their taxonomy is relatively well known, however new taxa and nomenclatural changes are frequently ocurring, mainly due to taxonomic revisions at the genus level. Currently in the Neotropics, 127 taxa (between genera and subgenera) are recorded, with 59 taxa belonging to 33 genera and 220 species (with 23 new records) present in Ecuador, and nine more genera that allegedly could be registered. With the aim of promoting the study and knowledge of this group in Ecuador, an identification key for the genera and subgenera present and/or supposed to be present in this country is provided in this work, which includes current taxa from Scarabaeinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) for the neotropic.
