The knorvledge about the Coleoptera fauna and
the distribution ofits species in Lithuania is still
incorrplete. A list of2879 species ofLithuanian
beetles is given in the rronograph ,.Lictuvos
fauna. Vabalai" (Pileckis, Monsevidius 1995,
1997). Infornation about additional 430 species
recorded in Lithuania has been publishecl later
(Baricvskis 2001; Sablevidius & Ferenca 1995;
Sablcvidius 2003, 200,1; Tamutis 1996, 1999, 2001,

lectcd using Barbcr's and pherolrone traps, us
ing entomological nets, searching in dead u,ood,
under bark. and hand catches
The nomenclature of the beetles fbllows Law-
rence & Newton ( 1995). Beetles were identified
accorcling to the following literature: Freude,
Harde, Lohse (1969-81); Hnrka (1996);
Smreczynski (1974).

... The most comprehensive list of Lithuanian Coleoptera containing 3597 species of beetles was published by Tamutis et al. (2011). Every year, numbers of articles presenting new and rare species for Lithuanian Coleoptera fauna are presented (Ferenca et al., 2011; Tamutis, 2012; Monsevičius, 2013; Ivinskis et al., 2014 Ivinskis et al., , 2015). Despite all the work and publications by coleopterologists, knowledge about Coleoptera fauna in Lithuania is still incomplete. ...
... Concerning the Carabidae subtribe Stenolophina 30 new species and subspecies have been described from the Palaearctic Region since 1999 (ITO 2000;ITO & JAEGER 2000;KATAEV & WRASE 2006MORITA 2006;WRASE & JAEGER 2007;FELIX & MUILWIJK 2009;JAEGER 2009JAEGER , 2010JAEGER , 2012JAEGER , 2013JAEGER , 2015aJAEGER & FELIX 2009;WRASE & KATAEV 2009). In addition, several new synonyms were established, and numerous new faunistic records were provided, including first country and province records, or first records for the Palaearctic region (KABAK & OVTCHINNIKOV 2002;KATAEV , 2003aKATAEV , b, 2013KATAEV , 2015RIZUN 2003;SERRANO 2003;TELFER 2003;LIANG 2004;RECK & CHALADZE 2004;PAIK & MOON 2005;KATAEV & LIANG 2005;WRASE 2005LUO & ZHUANG 2006;TAMUTIS & FERENKA 2006;GUEORGUIEV 2007GUEORGUIEV , 2015JAEGER 2007JAEGER , 2008JAEGER , 2009JAEGER , 2011aJAEGER , 2012JAEGER , 2013LIANG & LIU 2007 However, the Stenolophina part (JAEGER & KATAEV in prep.) of the second edition of the first volume of the Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera will include a number of additional first country or province records which are not published so far. The following contribution provides detailed data referring to these records, and various other interesting faunistic records of certain species from the Palaearctic, Oriental and Afrotropical regions. ...

Abstract: Anthracus descarpentriesi JEANNEL, 1948 is considered a junior synonym of Anthracus angusticollis (PÉRINGUEY, 1908), Dicheirotrichus punicus aegyptiacus SCHATZMAYR, 1936 is treated as a junior synonym of Dicheirotrichus (Pelagophilus) punicus BEDEL, 1899, and Stenolophus narentinus J. MÜLLER, 1916 [previously the authorship of Stenolophus narentinus was erroneously attributed to DROVENIK & PEKS (1999)] is considered a junior synonym of Stenolophus (Stenolophus) proximus DEJEAN, 1829.

A check-list of carabid beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) of Kaliningrad region (south-eastern Baltic Sea coast) with distribution of the species according to the division of the regions area on landscapes is provided. At present the list includes 283 species. 202 ground beetles species are found in our region in last 30 years (13 species new for the fauna), 81 species of the family are cited by the latest German work (Bercio, Folwaczny 1979) only. Data on 3 new for the Kaliningrad fauna Carabidae species (Agonum duftschmidi Schmidt, Tachyta nana (Gyll.) and Badister meridionalis Puel.) is presented for the first time. Nebria rufescens (Strom) and Agonum munsteri (Hell.) reported from Kaliningrad region (Alekseev 2002) are removed from check-list because erroneous identification. The occurrence of 5 species (Calosoma investigator (Ill.), Callisthenes reticulatum (F.), Amara tricuspidata Dej., Dicheirotrichus gustavii Cr., Brachinus crepitans (L)) in Kaliningrad region at present time is considered doubtful. The literature data for the fauna and distribution of ground beetles in Baltic States, Nord-Eastern Poland and West Byelorussia are analyzed.

This paper presents the first complete and updated list of all 3597 species of beetles (Insecta: Coleoptera) belonging to 92 familiesfound and published in Lithuania until 2011, with comments also provided on the main systematic and nomenclatural changes since the last monographic treatment in two volumes (Pileckis and Monsevičius 1995, 1997). The introductory section provides a general overview of the main features of the territory of Lithuania, the origins and formation of the beetle fauna and their conservation, the faunistic investigations in Lithuania to date revealing the most important stages of the faunistic research process with reference to the most prominent scientists, an overview of their work, and their contribution to Lithuanian coleopteran faunal research. Species recorded in Lithuania by some authors without reliable evidence and requiring further confirmation with new data are presented in a separate list, consisting of 183 species. For the first time, analysis of errors in works of Lithuanian authors concerning data on coleopteran fauna has been conducted and these errors have been corrected. All available published and Internet sources on beetles found in Lithuania have been considered in the current study. Over 630 literature sources on species composition of beetles, their distribution in Lithuania and neighbouring countries, and taxonomic revisions and changes are reviewed and cited. An alphabetical list of these literature sources is presented. After revision of public beetle collections in Lithuania, the authors propose to remove 43 species from the beetle species list of the country on the grounds, that they have been wrongly identified or published by mistake. For reasons of clarity, 19 previously noted but later excluded species are included in the current checklist with comments. Based on faunal data from neighbouring countries, species expected to occur in Lithuania are matnioned. In total 1390 species are attributed to this category and data on their distribution in neighbouring countries is presented. Completion of this study provides evidence that the Lithuanian coleopteran fauna has yet to be completely investigated and it is estimated that approximately 28 % of beetle species remain undiscovered in Lithuania. More than 85% of beetle species expected for Lithuania have been found in the following families: Cerylonidae, Geotrupidae, Haliplidae, Kateridae, Lycidae, Lucanidae, Mycetophagidae, Scarabaeidae and Silphidae. In families with few species such as Alexiidae, Boridae, Byturidae, Dascilidae, Drilidae, Eucinetidae, Lampyridae, Lymexilidae, Megalopodidae, Nemonychidae, Nosodendridae, Noteridae, Orsodacnidae, Pyrochroidae, Pythidae, Psephenidae, Rhysodidae, Sphaeritidae, Sphaeriusidae, Sphindidae, Stenotrahelidae and Trogidae, all possible species have already been discovered. However in some beetle families such as Aderidae, Bothrideridae, Eucnemidae, Laemoploeidae, Mordellidae, Ptiliidae, Scraptidae and Throscidae less than 50% of all possible species are known. At present the beetle species recorded in Lithuania belong to 92 families, with species from 9 other families such as Agyrtidae, Biphylidae, Deradontidae, Mycteridae, Ochodaeidae, Phleophilidae, Phloeostichidae, Prostomidae, Trachypachidae are expected to be found. A bibliography and a index of subfamily and genus levels are provided. The information published in the monograph will serve to further faunistic and distribution research of beetles and will help to avoid confusion in the identificatation of coleopteran fauna of Lithuania.
