Euoniticellus is a genus of dung beetles in the subfamily Scarabaeinae of the scarab beetle family.[1][2]

Four species from this genus (E. africanus, E. fulvus, E. intermedius, E. pallipes) were introduced into Australia as part of the Australian Dung Beetle Project, and became established there.[3]
