Abstract

The beetle (Insecta: Coleoptera) fauna associated with the underground burrow systems of the plains pocket gopher, Geomys bursarius (Shaw) (Mammalia: Rodentia: Geomyidae), is reported from one of Indiana's primary conservation zones, Kankakee Sands, for the first time. Pitfall traps baited with pig dung were placed into active burrow systems and routinely checked from February 2014 to January 2015. A total of 26 species of Coleoptera were found in the burrow systems. We summarize phenological data for the most commonly collected species. Also, a complete checklist of burrow-inhabiting beetles is provided.
