ABSTRACT. New information on heteropterans of the “Alakit” resource reserve located in the northern taiga subzone in the northwest part of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is provided. In total, 53 species from 44 genera and 15 families were identified: Miridae (23 species), Saldidae (7), Pentatomidae (6), Lygaeidae (4), and other families with 1–2 species each. Six species, Polymerus rubidus (Reuter, 1896) (Miridae), Acalypta marginatus (Wolff, 1804) (Tingidae), Camptotelus lineolatus (Schilling, 1829) (Lygaeidae), Phimodera lapponica (Zetterstedt, 1828) (Scutelleridae), Carpocoris coreanus Distant, 1899 and Dolycoris baccarum (Linnaeus, 1758) (Pentatomidae) are recorded for the first time for North-East Yakutia. The fauna is based on widespread arctoboreal, polyzonal, and boreal species with Holarctic (39), trans-Palearctic (4), trans-Eurasian (4) and European-Siberian (3) ranges. The East Siberian group is represented by Salda micans Jakovlev, 1889 and Polymerus rubidus Reut., and a relic representative of the steppe fauna of Yakutia distributed in Central Asia and Siberia, Carpocoris coreanus Dist., is also registered.

KEY WORDS: Resource reserve “Alakit”, fauna, North-West Yakutia, Heteroptera, new records.
