Assemblages of some beetle families were investigated on three transitorily non- cultivated sandy fields near the Brambory and Horušice villages in the Kutná Hora region (central Bohemia). During the ten-year study period (2012, 2014–2021), a total of 55 threatened or regionally significant species were collected using various methods of sampling. Seven recorded taxa (Amara tricuspidata Dejean, 1831, Anthicus bimaculatus (Illiger, 1801), Harpalus flavescens (Piller & Mitterpacher, 1783), H. hirtipes (Panzer, 1796), Dicronychus equiseti (Herbst, 1784), Negastrius sabulicola (Boheman, 1852) and Polyphylla fullo (Linnaeus, 1758)) belong to the most regionally significant beetles. The authors consider the findings of a large number of psammobiont and psammophilous species to be very valuable with regard to the decrease of non-forest sandy areas in the Czech Republic.

Otho sphondyloides (Germar, 1818) belongs to the subfamily Melasinae, tribe Calyptocerini (Coleoptera: Eucnemidae). It is a widespread but seldom encoutered false click beetle with the range reaching from northern Germany and Carinthia in Austria to Korea and Japan. Although O. sphondyloides has already been reported from several isolated localities in Central Europe, no record has been available from the Czech Republic. Here, I report the occurrence in Southern Moravia, in the lowland deciduous primary forests close to the junction of the Morava and Dyje rivers (Soutok area, South Moravia Biosphere Region). The new record indicates that the species might persist in further undisturbed localities in the region. Biology notes and the records of other xylophagous beetles occurring in the same locality are provided.

The taxonomic status of several species of the genera Dicronychus Brullé, 1832 and Cardiophorus Eschscholtz, 1829 is treated herein. The identifications of Dicronychus equiseti (Herbst, 1784), D. equisetioides Lohse, 1976 and D. luciae Laibner, 1985 by Stanislav Laibner are revised. The following new synonymy is proposed: Dicronychus luciae Laibner, 1985 = Dicronychus equiseti (Herbst, 1784) syn. nov. The species Dicronychus testaceus (Fabricius 1792) stat. n. is newly treated as a bona fide species, based on the morphological study of the male and female genitalia, especially aedeagus and bursa copulatrix. An overview of other species from the ‚Dicronychus cinereus group‘ known from Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia and Iran is likewise presented herein. The atypical shapes of lateral sclerites of brusa copulatrix from south-Moravian (Czechia) population of Cardiophorus dolini Mardjanian, 1985 are mentioned and described. A correction of errors published in Mertlik (2011) is presented. The paper is concluded with a Czech and Slovak faunistic survey of Dicronychus cinereus and records of D. testaceus stat. n. from Czechia, Slovakia, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Russia.

Ohrožené druhy často zoufale potřebují naši pomoc. Snahy o jejich ochranu v České republice často ignorují základní biologické zákonitosti i zdravý rozum. Reprezentanti státní moci volí ty nejsnazší cesty, za bagatelní přestupky tvrdě stíhají jednotlivce, ale plošnou likvidaci zvláště chráněných druhů velkoryse ignorují. Pokud doma pietně uchováváte malou sbírku motýlů, které před sto lety nachytal Vás pradědeček, možná k Vám naběhnou policejní zakuklenci a skončíte za mřížemi. Pokud ale zahubíte tisíce chráněných motýlů, třeba tím, že zdevastujete podstatný kus třeba chráněné krajinné oblasti Pálava, buďte v klidu. Česká inspekce životního prostředí nehne ani brvou. Tak dnes (ne)fungují zákony a instituce, které kdysi vznikly k ochraně přírody

Species Clambus pallidulus Reitter, 1911 stat. n. and Clambus shinto Endrödy-Younga, 1986 stat. n. are defined on the basis of the differences detected on male genitalia, distribution and bionomic requirements. Previous subspecies have been elevated to species level. A map showing the distribution of Clambus pallidulus based on known faunistic data from Europe and new findings from the Czech Republic, Greece, Slovakia and Slovenia was created. The species Clambus pallidulus Reitter, 1911 is newly corroborated from the territory of Albania, the Czech Republic and Greece and is a new species for Slovenia.

This work presents new data (from the years 2018 and 2019) from a survey of beetles (Coleoptera) of the Protected Landscape Area and Biosphere Reserve Křivoklátsko (Czech Republic). In addition to the already registered species (JANUŠ 2016, JANUŠ et al. 2018), several new and older published records have been added, and 115 species have been newly introduced for the area. In total, 3573 species are known from the surveyed area. Of these, 791 species are listed in the Red List of Endangered Species of the Czech Republic – Invertebrates. The species Bolitochara lucida (Gravenhorst, 1802) and Sepedophilus bipustulatus (Gravenhorst, 1802) are reclassified from the bioindicator group R2 to R1. The species Bolitochara tecta Assing, 2014 is newly included in the bioindicator group R2. The species Sepedophilus bipunctatus (Gravenhorst, 1802) is reclassified from the bioindicator group R1 to R2 and at the same time it is excluded from the category VU (vulnerable). The species Dropephylla ioptera (Stephens, 1834) is excluded from the category CR (critically endangered).
