Title variants
Languages of publication
The paper provides new faunistic data of 17 species of Melandryidae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea). Among them 8 species are new for the Kampinos National Park. The occurrence of 8 species previously mentioned in literature was confirmed. Only Anisoxya fuscula, although known from literature, was not confirmed. One species: Phloiotrya subtilis have been recorded from the Mazovian Lowland for the first time. A current knowledge is most probably not exhaustive and further research could enrich the list.
