Dung beetle fauna of the Konavle region south-eastern Croatia was surveyed during several field trips organized between 2012 and 2013. Most specimens were collected by hand on vertebrate dung at 12 localities. A total of 31 species were recorded, 20 of which represented the first records for the area. From the literature we gathered 17 additional species, raising the number of species known to occur in the Konavle region to 48. The most interesting record is the second record of Onthophagus sericatus for Croatia. Several other rare species were also recorded, including Caccobius histeroides, Onthophagus opacicollis, Onthophagus fissicornis and Typhaeus lateridens.
