Abstract

The work reflects the first study results of the beetles within the Kivertsi National Park «Tsumanska pushcha» – a unique natural monument in northwestern Ukraine. The National Nature Park is located within the Kivertsi administrative district of Volyn region and covers an area of 33475.34 ha. It has been created on the basis of the most valuable oak and pine-oak forests. The research was conducted in 2017-2019 by route collection methods and mowing by entomological net. There were examined the floodplain meadows of Konopelka river near the villages: Sokyrychi, Muravysche, Palche, the forest in the Papiki hole near the village Derno, forest near the village Dachne, meadows and forest near the village Tsuman, forest near the town Kivertsi, floodplains of the rivers Putylivka (Stavok village, Tsuman village), Kormyn (near Berestyane village), Rudky (near Zhuravichi village), Hrushvitsja (near Omeljne village), melioration canals and meadows around them (Derno village, Tsuman village). 84 species of hard-winged insects with 21 families have been registered in the Kivertsi National Nature Park “Tsumanska Pushcha”: Carabidae (8 species), Cerambycidae (15), Chrysomelidae (12), Cleridae (2), Coccinellidae (3), Apionidae (1), Attelabi (1), Attelabda (1) (1), Curculionidae (6), Meloidae (1), Mordellidae (1), Oedemeridae (2), Tenebrionidae (2), Buprestidae (2), Cantharidae (5), Elateridae (2), Geotrupidae (2), Lucanidae (2), Scarabaeidae (13), Histeridae (1), Hydrophilidae (1), Silphidae (2). Compared to previous studies, the species composition of the beetles increased in 2,3 times. Among the hard-winged insects, there are 2 species listed in the Red List of Ukraine (2009): Lucanus cervus and Aromia moschata. For the first time 82 species of beetles have been noted for the territory of the park. The obtained results are preliminary and incomplete, so the coleopterofauna of the park requires a special research.
