Abstract
The authors describe and illustrate in detail the third instar larva of Euonthophagus crocatus (Mulsant & Godart, 1870), a coprophagous west palaearctic Scarabaeidae. This is the first larval description for the entire genus Euonthophagus. Some considerations on the taxonomical significance of the larval characters in Onthophagini are also provided.
