The species composition of the genus Onthophagus Latreille, 1802 in Papuasia (New Guinea and adjacent islands) is discussed. Twenty new species from Papuasia are described and illustrated, several being accommodated in multi-species operational groups; a synoptic guide and keys to the species are given. The following new species are proposed: Onthophagus (eliptaminus group): O. kokoiorus, O. solomonensis; Onthophagus (pedisequus group): O. mokwamensis; Onthophagus (quadripustulatus group): O. tarasovi; Onthophagus (tauroides group): O. opacotaurus, O. pseudocostifer; Onthophagus (coprimorphus group): O. ioranus, O. ubaidillahi; Onthophagus (declivis group): O. francoisgenieri; Onthophagus (labdacus group): O. alaindrumonti, O. andrewsmithi; Onthophagus (platalea group): O. yifer; Onthophagus (asper group): O. papurugosus. The following new species have no obvious close Papuasian relatives: Onthophagus hagenmontis, O. ioramaculatus, O. papuater, O. papuplicatus, O. peotoxus, O. sylvipapuanus, O. toxopeus. A lectotype is designated for Onthophagus costifer Gillet, 1930, in the tauroides group. A list of all named Papuasian species of Onthophagus is given.
