原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)The orientation stimuli of adult individuals of the beetle Phalerisida maculata Kulzer (Coleoptera, Tenebrionidae) over the beach surface, were studied at two sandy beaches of the chilean coast approximately 1300 km apart, Apolillado (ca. 29° S) and Playa Universitaria de Mehuı́n (ca. 39° S). Phalerisida maculata did not orient by astronomic cues such as the sun and moon, nor by the terrestrial magnetic field. Both populations showed positive scototaxis, and oriented downward on slopes with dry sediments, and upwards on slopes with wet sediments.
