Introduction

     The fauna of the family Elateridae (Coleoptera) in Mongolia is currently inadequately known. Previous publications on the Mongolian elaterid beetles exist by Fleutiaux (1936), Gurjeva (1968, 1969, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1975a, b, 1976, 1980 and 1984), Emetz et al. (1974), Tegahzhargal (1989) and Bussler (2013). Currently 94 species of Elateridae have been recorded from Mongolia. The country is dominated by desert (Gobi) and steppe habitats, which are less suitable for the elaterids more associated with forest and riparian habitats. Due to the traditionally low intensity of forest use in Mongolia, these southern parts of the boreal forest belt in the Palaearctic provide natural habitats with many species, which are rare in Europe, but occurring here in strong populations (Müller et al. 2013). The appearance of international wood companies are new threat to these extensive virgin forests, important habitat for elaterids.
     Elaterids were collected during three trips in 2010, 2012 and 2014 covering the region of Ulaanbaatar (surrounding), Changai, Gobi, Altai and the Forests of the Khan Khentii area between Zuuncharaa and Khonin Nuga (buffer zone of the Strictly Protected Area of Khan Khentii (Mühlenberg et al. 2011)). In addition, the click-beetles of the collecting trips of the eminent Hungarian coleopterist Dr. Zoltán Kaszab (1915–1986) between 1963 and 1968 in Mongolia and deposited in the collection of the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Budapest, Hungary (HNHM) were examined.
     In this contribution seven species are recorded for the first time in Mongolia.
