Research into the scarab beetle Scarabaeoidae fauna was done in Kopački rit Nature Park, one of the largest semi-natural floodplains in Europe. Research was conducted at three sampling sites: Tikveš Forest, Vemeljski Dunavac, and Sakadaš Lake, in the time periods July to November 2010 and April to July 2011. Continual sampling was done using the Barber pitfall trap method with attractants and the Flight Interception Trap FIT method. Animal excrement, pork liver, bananas and mushrooms were used as attractants. In total 1896

specimens were trapped and the presence of 23 species was determined. The most abundant species were: Onthophagus coenobita 554, Sisyphus schaefferi 478, Onthophagus verticicornis 291, and Onthophagus vacca 243. A larger number of specimens 70.3 % were sampled using Barber pitfall traps, with excrement

and pork liver attracting 81.7 % of individual insects.
