Andrey Frolov in the field near Vladivostok, Russian Far East.

  

Andrey Frolov is interested in systematics, zoogeography, and morphology of Scarabaeoidea as well as in the theory of taxonomy (especially the relationship between classifications based on adult and larval characters) and phylogenetics. He is currently conducting research on the systematics of Orphninae, African Scarabaeinae, and Palearctic Aphodiinae.
