|Aphodius contaminatus is a common UK species and often found in large numbers where it occurs. To date, we have only found this Dung Beetle on Budby Common, where it was abundant in Sheep dung (often four or more per sample) during mid-September 2008. Aphodius contaminatus is typical of most Dung Beetles, in that females are larger than the males. Sizes of the ones we found, ranged from 5 - 6.5mm.|
