Section Short Communications

The paper presents data on a new record of very rare cerambycid, Leptura aurulenta (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae), in the Mordovia State Nature Reserve (Russia). This is a third reliable registration of a species within Russia. It expands the range of this beetle to 600 km to the east. We presented an original biotope description, data on distribution and biology of the L. aurulenta.
