The diving beetle Laccornis oblongus (Stephens, 1835) is recorded for the first time from Bavaria, southern Germany, which marks the most south-westerly record of the species known to date. Three specimens were collected in the Murnauer Moos nature reserve in Upper Bavaria. We summarize what is known about the species habitat in Germany and provide photographs of the sampling site and habitus, median lobe of aedeagus, and paramere of the species. We provide a checklist of the 20 other diving beetle species we found syntopic with L. oblongus.

Hydroporus esseri sp. n. is described from the Köprülü Canyon near Sagirin in southern Turkey (Antalya province), where it was found in a backwater pool of the Köprülü River. It is the smallest species of the genus Hydroporus Clairville, 1806 recorded so far from Turkey. Morphologically the new species is very close to Hydroporus umbrosus (Gyllenhal, 1808), which is widespread in North and Central Europe, Siberia and Far East. H. esseri sp. n. can be separated from H. umbrosus chiefly by its smaller size, the shape of the median lobe and surface colour. The aedeagi and habitus of both species are illustrated. Notes on their distribution and life habitats are given. Hydroporus memnonius Nicolai, 1822 is recorded for the first time from Turkey, and H. umbrosus for the first time from Slovakia. Altogether 180 species of the genus Hydroporus are now reported world-wide and 34 from Turkey.

This paper deals with the aquatic beetle species of the family Dytiscidae collected from various freshwaters habitats in Montenegro. In total 39 water beetle species were collected from 56 localities in Montenegro between 2007 and 2010. Twelve species and one subspecies are reported for the first time for Montenegro: Agabus sturmii (Gyllenhal, 1808), A. paludosus (Fabricius, 1801), Deronectes moestus inconspectus (Leprieur, 1876), D. platynotus (Germar, 1834), Dytiscus circumcinctus Ahrens, 1811, D. dimidiatus Bergstr?sser, 1778, Hydroporus macedonicus Fery & Pesic, 2006, H. pubescens (Gyllenhal, 1808), Ilybius chalconatus (Panzer, 1797), I. fuliginosus fuliginosus (Fabricius, 1792), I. pseudoneglectus (Franciscolo, 1972), Liopterus haemorrhoidalis (Fabricius, 1787) and Nebrioporus luctuosus (Aub?, 1838). The female genitalia of Hydroporus macedonicus Fery & Pesic, 2006, a rare water beetle previously known only from southern Macedonia, are illustrated. The present state of knowledge of the Montenegrin diving beetle fauna and its ecological characteristics is discussed.

New data was added to the oribatid species composition of the Rivnensky Nature Reserve. Overall, 62 mite species were recorded for the territory of research in this study. The species Acrogalumna longipluma, Micreremus brevipes, Licneremaeus licnophorus, Oribatella reticulata, and Porobelba spinosa were not previously listed for the Western Polissia. Of the 60 species of Lower Oribatida mites that have been recorded by other authors in that area, only 18 are found again in the Rivnensky Nature Reserve, indicating that our results are intermediate. A representative of the genus Mainothrus Choi, 1996 (Mainothrus badius (Berlese, 1905)) is found in Ukraine for the first time.

This paper discusses the preliminary results of the first comprehensive survey of the spiders of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (BTNR) in Singapore. Two plots were established in each of the three zones of vegetation, viz., primary forest, old secondary forest, and maturing secondary forest. They were repeatedly sampled over an 18-month period. Sorting of the collection so far suggests that the three vegetation zones harbour rather different spider assemblages. Only ~9% of the total spider fauna recovered was shared by all three zones. The results have also yielded a preliminary picture of dominance, abundance and rarity. Although first intended to obtain a baseline for future quantitative analyses, the survey became a testing ground to modify and refine methodology so as to conduct future quantitative surveys with greater scientific rigour. Taxonomic work on the samples so far shows that the spiders in the BTNR span over 43 families, of which six families are listed for the first time in Singapore. The tally is summarised in an interim checklist of BTNR spiders. The checklist, with a total of 317 entries, shows that there are 158 described species of spiders in BTNR, of which 25 species are new records for Singapore. Another 159 morphospecies are provisionally recognised as distinct species, some of which may be new to science. Our observations during the survey have allowed us to provide a narrative of BTNR spider diversity against a backdrop of their microhabitat specialisation.
