Abstract

Some 20 Coleoptera species new to Finland are presented, mostly based on my own collections during the years 2001-2008. Some of these are also based on old misidentifications which are straightened out here. Bembidion obtusum Audinet-Serville, Catops fuliginosus Erichson, Phyllodrepa vilis Erichson, Euplectus kirbii ssp. kirbii Denny, Atheta castanoptera (Mannerheim), Gabrius piliger Mulsant & Rey, Philonthus alpinus Eppelsheim, Ernobius pini (Sturm), Epuraea melanocephala (Marsham), Meligethes subaeneus Sturm, M. matronalis Audisio & Spornraft, Glischrochilus grandis (Tournier), Cryptophagus intermedius Bruce, Enicmus testaceus (Stephens), Psylliodes chalcomera (Illiger), Bagous claudicans Boheman, Ceutorhynchus pectoralis Weise, C. arquatus (Herbst), C. campestris Gyllenhal and Hylastes attenuatus Erichson are reported as new to the Finnish fauna. Short faunistic data are provided. Also the long mixing of Corticaria serrata (Paykull) and the newly described C. subamurensis Saluk is pointed out.
