ABSTRACT. 23 ground beetle species are newly recorded for Novosibirskaya Oblast of Russia. Five species previously known from Central Kazakhstan, Dyschiriodes microthorax (Motschulsky, 1844), Tachys lenkoranus Csiki, 1928, Bembidion kazakhstanicum Kryzhanovskij, 1979, Pterostichus taksonyis Csiki, 1930, and Dicheirotrichus discicollis (Dejean, 1829), are registered for the first time in Siberia, and Cymindis scapularis Schaum, 1857 is newly recorded for the West Siberian Plain. In comparison with data obtained in 2002, the revised list of 406 ground beetle species of Novosibirskaya Oblast has increased by 12%. The increase in species with a subarid type of distribution share can be explained by the intensification of climate aridization in Siberia in recent years.
