Abstract: New records of ground beetle collected from 29 localities in Kosovo are presented. Collection of the material was carried out in the period 2018–2019. Altogether, 69 species and subspecies of ground beetles are identified. Twenty one species and four genera are recorded for the first time for the fauna of Kosovo. In addition, five species and two genera are first reported from Kosovo with first detailed records. Importance of premeditated efforts for collecting material in less investigated areas in the Western Balkans is also evidenced by finding of a great total of species that represent second records for Kosovo.

Keywords: Balkan Peninsula, Carabidae, new records
