Pushkin S.V., Belous V.N., Alikhadzhiev M.Kh., Erzhapova R.S., Bagrikova N.A.


In the present study, for the first time in the territory of Ciscaucasia, data are presented on the species diversity of beetles living in the fruit bodies of fungi belonging to 2 orders (Polyporales and Agaricales). A total of 58 species of 17 families of the Coleoptera order were identified. Material was collected by the author Pushkin, SV.
