Byk A., Cieślak R., Piskorek W. 2020. Persistent isolated population of Onthophagus grossepunctatus REITTER, 1905 (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) near Kazimierz Dolny (Poland). Baltic J. Coleopterol., 20 (1): 101 - 108.

After almost 70 years the occurrence of Onthophagus grossepunctatus REITTER, 1905 in Kazimierz Dolny, hitherto the only locality in Poland, has been confirmed, and additional locality discovered in Bochotnica. In numbers, with 494 exx. collected, O. grossepunctatus was the second most abundant species among 27 coprophagous representatives of the superfamily Scarabaeoidea in the material. The most dangerous threat to its further occurrence near Kazimierz Dolny is the abandonment of the traditional pasturage and overgrowing of xerothermic grasslands.
