Ground beetles that have been confirmed to occur to date in the southern Kuril Islands (The Kunashir Island and the neighboring islands of the Lesser Kuril Chain), Russian Far East. The present study was based on the material we collected on Kunashir, Shikotan, Polonskogo, Yurii, and Tanfil’eva islands in 1990, 2008, 2009, and 2011–2018, as well as the collections of the Federal Scientific Center of East Asia Terrestrial Biodiversity, the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Science, Vladivostok, the Moscow Pedagogical State University, Moscow, and the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Saint Petersburg.
