Widhiono I, Darsono, Fasihah N. 2017. Short Communication: Endemics species of dung beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) on  the  southern  slope  of  Mount  Slamet,  Central  Java,  Indonesia.  Biodiversitas  18:  283-287.  A  survey  was  conducted  to  gauge  the diversity  of  dung  beetles  (Coleoptera:  Scarabaeidae)  on  the  forested  southern  slope  of  Mount  Slamet,  Central  Java,  Indonesia, from April to June 2011. A total of 255 dung beetles of 14 species were collected. Of the 255 specimens collected, 125 (49.42%) were found in secondary forest and 130 (50.58%) were found in Agathis forest. The most abundant species was Phacosoma punctatum with 107 individuals (41.9%), followed by Onthophagus echinus with 53 individuals (20.7%) and Onthophagus palatus with 36 individuals (14.1 %).  One  species  (Onthophagus  trituber)  was  discovered  to  be  a  cosmopolitan  species,  while  ten  species  (Onthophagus  armatus, Onthophagus  discedens,  Onthophagus  echinus,  Onthophagus  egenus,  Onthophagus  holzi,  Onthophagus  luridipennis,  Onthophagus palatus, Onthophagus sp., Dactylosternum sp. and Apogonia cribrata) were endemic to Mount Slamet
