Eight new species of Onthophagus Latreille, 1802 from the Moluccas (Indonesia) are described and compared with their closest known relatives. The new species are placed in multi-species operational groups as follows: Onthophagus sibela, O. wayaua (malasiacus group); Onthophagus alfuricus (deflexicollis group); Onthophagus biscarinulatus (carinulatus group); Onthophagus coprimorphoides (coprimorphus group); Onthophagus frankrozendaali, O. seramicus (seramicus group); Onthophagus ontosatu (ungrouped single species). The identification of these new Onthophagus species is supported by dichotomous keys and a synoptic table of characters. Three named species are recorded from the Moluccas for the first time. In the O. deflexicollis group a homonymy is corrected: Onthophagus danumicus Krikken & Huijbregts, nom.nov. for Onthophagus danumensis Krikken & Huijbregts, 2011 non Ochi, Kon & Barclay, 2009. All 19 Onthophagus species thus far recorded from the Moluccas are listed, with annotations.
