In this work we summarize the main characteristics of Geotrupidae and Scarabaeidae (Coleoptera, Scarabaeoidea) fauna inhabiting Comunidad de Madrid, including an upda- ted checklist of species as well as maps representing the observed and potential distri- butions of all species. Geographical variation in species richness, rarity or endemicity was also estimated, with a brief discussion on the geographical pattern obtained.
