(1976), low genetic variability for isoenzymatic loci from the cave beetle Ptomaphagus hirtus (Leiodidae) was one third smaller than the genetic variability of most invertebrates, which may be attributed to environmental constancy and habitat uniformity.

Likewise, the concentration of decomposing material near the forest floor may explain why some saproxylic and scavenging groups (e.g., Scolytinae, Silvanidae, Eucnemidae, Staphylinidae, Leiodidae, Silphidae, etc.) were captured in higher numbers near the ground than in the canopy (Tables 4, 5).
