beetles are the most abundant in the study site especially between April and July and in September-October.
Peaks in abundance of the two tenebrionid
beetles appeared to correspond to dry years during 1998-2006.
In addition, two tenebrionids
were reported with northern distributions.

Linear desiccation rates also have been observed for some tenebrionid
beetles (Renault and Coray 2004).
These and similar quinones are shared by disparate groups, including millipedes; cockroaches; tenebrionid
, staphylinid, and carabid beetles; earwigs; and daddylonglegs (Opiliones).
Population size, microgeographic distribution and habitat separation in some tenebrionid
Neither of the two species unique to Camp Site, Asidina furcata (Champion) and an unidentified tenebrionid
, were large components of the survey and are most likely incidental collections.

Given the lack of surface moisture, the desert supports a surprising diversity of wildlife, from fish-moths and tenebrionid
beetles in the dunes to gemsbuk, kudu and springbok, which feed on the lush vegetation along the riverbeds.
