On our hike up to the first site I smelled the unmistakable odor of a rotting animal. As a taxonomist of carrion beetles this was exactly what I was hoping to find! Excitedly I collected my first Chinese carrion beetles. This dead badger had two species of Oiceoptoma, one Necrodes and one Nicrophorus I was looking for. A very good find (albeit a SMELLY one).
