Dear Carlos,

"Onthophagus javensis" seems to be a typographic error used by Hartini 
more times, the name "Onthophagus javensis" he listed also in an article 
recently published in Treubia (2013, vol. 40, pp. 47-59).
In fact, it could actually be Onthophagus javanensis Balthasar, 1963 (a 
replacement name for Onthophagus javanus Lansberge, 1883 (nec Fabricius, 
1801)).

All the best,
                              ales
