Abstract

A phylogenetic analysis of the New World Eucraniini was conducted using cladistics. The tribe is monophyletic based on an analysis of 64 morphological characters. The flying Ennearabdus is the sister taxon to the three flightless genera, Anomiopsoides, Eucranium, and Glyphoderus, and Anomiopsoides and Glyphoderus share a common ancestor. The relationship of the eucraniines to other tribes of Scarabaeinae, dung preference, a comparison to the flightless southwest African genus Pachysoma, and the biogeography of the tribe are also discussed.
