Geography
Country: Mexico
State: Chiapas

Coordinate: 16° 51' 23" N, 93° 12' 6" W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: coordinate is the average of ranges given in text
elevation range 767 to 1088 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: fragment
Substrate: ground surface
MAP: 1200.0
Habitat comments: "tropical dry forest, fragments of secondary forest and fallow land in various stages of succession" and specifically "two fragments without contiguous living fences and covering an area < 2 ha"
MAP stated in text; CMT and WMT unclear because the nearest climate station (76741, Coatzacoalcos) is at sea level
Methods
Life forms: scarab beetles
Sites: 2
Site length: 250.000
Sampling methods: line transect, baited, pitfall traps
Sample size: 514
Days: 20
Seasons: wet or monsoon
Nets or traps: 12
Net or trap nights: 240
Sampling comments: two transects each with six human excrement-, cow dung-, or squid-baited pitfall traps separated by 25 m (i.e., a total transect length of 2 x 125 m) that were sampled on 20 occasions "during two rainy seasons: from May to October 2004, and from May to August 2005"
there is a conflict in the text, with "bait replaced every 48 h" but traps supposedly "visited" for 6 h on each occasion; I assume that 20 visits means 20 sampling days, period
