Species text
The click beetle Athous campyloides is local in south-east England, but with a scatter of records to West Cornwall. It has been recorded from grassland, road-sides verges, gardens, coastal cliffs, a disused chalk pit and a disused clay pit. The beetle probably breeds in the soil at the roots of plants. The species is crepuscular and gregarious. References
