Sulcophanaeus faunus ( Fabricius, 1775)  

Remarks. Sulcophanaeus faunus   has been recorded from BA ( Arnaud 2002a) without further details. This species is widespread in the Amazon basin in humid rainforest habitats although it has been recorded as far south as Paraguay along gallery forests. If the species is indeed present in the region, it is likely to be restricted to similar humid habitats.
