ABSTRACT. The results of long-term studies of the fauna of ground beetles in Kemerovskaya Oblast are summarized. 357 species from 68 genera were identified, 12 of which are recorded for the region for the first time. The greatest species diversity was noted for the genera Bembidion (62), Amara (46), Harpalus (39), Pterostichus (30), Carabus (18) and Agonum (15). The range structure is dominated by sub-boreal humid (31.1%) and boreal (29.7%) species, and sub-arid species account for 18.2%, polyzonal 13.2%, and mountain endemics 7.8%. According to the longitudinal component of the range, the ground beetle fauna is heterogeneous and is mainly composed of western palaearctic (39.8%) and transpalaearctic (22.1%) species. The diversity of the natural zones of the region contributes to the formation of seven ecological groups of ground beetles, among which the floodplain-coastal complex dominates (39.2%), and the eurytopic group (2.3%) has the lowest species diversity.
