Ecological interactions

Feeds on

Adults and larvae feed on horse dung.

Distribution

The species was recorded from Caucasus, Turkey, Iran, and Middle Asia ( Nikolajev 1987). The range of it is unclear since it is difficult to separate from the closely-related and very similar Aphodius melanostictus   . Some published records of Aphodius clathratus   apparently belong to Aphodius melanostictus   .
