How are feces eating organisms called?

herbivores
carnivores
coprophages
xylophages
Many small organisms (ie insects) are coprophagous - they usually consume and redigest the feces of large animals. These feces contain substantial amounts of semi-digested food (herbivores' digestive systems are especially inefficient). Two feces-eating insects are the dung-beetle and the fly.
