Taken from dog feces along Lake Michigan shore.

Pretty sure this Aphodius lividus.

Moved from Aphodius.

a little darker than typical

Dissected this one and it is female. Unfortunately its the only one I have from this location. I will post male genitalia from a Kentucky specimen, hopefully soon.
