The paper presents overview of 10 insect species of the Mordovia State Nature Reserve which are included in the animal taxa list of second edition of the Red Data Book of Russian Federation. Amongst them, 3 species (Calosoma sycophanta, Сeruchus chrysomelinus, Protaetia fieberi) were found in the last five years. Since the year 2008 to date, old records of another 6 species (Dytiscus latissimus, Trypocopris vernalis, Osmoderma barnabita, Protaetia speciosissima, Parnopes grandior и Parnassius apollo) were confirmed. And 1 species (Lucanus cervus) is for the time being known only according to literature data. Descriptions of some species are accompanied by data on their abundance, biology and ecology.
