The same number of joints in the tarsi is a character generally common to very large groups of beetles, but in the Engidae, as Westwood has remarked, the number varies greatly; and the number likewise differs in the two sexes of the same species: again in fossorial
hymenoptera, the manner of neuration of the wings is a character of the highest importance, because common to large groups; but in certain genera the neuration differs in the different species, and likewise in the two sexes of the same species.
Functional Morphology of the Olfactory Mucosa and Olfactory Bulb in Fossorial
Rodents: The East African Root Rat (Tachyoryctes splendens) and the Naked Mole Rat (Heterocephalus glaber).
Because of the badger's burrowing habits and fossorial
lifestyle, the selection for grassland and cropland at the home range scale may be related to the presence of soils that are suitable for burrowing such as well drained, friable, sandy-loamy soil types (e.g., Apps et al., 2002; Quinn, 2008; Duquette et al, 2014).

It becomes more fossorial
species encountered in the field and damage groundnuts either by eating the roots, which kills the plants, or by eating the groundnuts only, by leaving behind a live but unproductive plant.
The scorpion family Bothriuridae comprises small to medium-sized fossorial
species, mostly from temperate areas (Sissom 1990; Kovaffk & Ojanguren-Affilastro 2013).
In general, survival rates were much lower than those of other fossorial
microtine species of Mediterranean Europe (e.g.
