Abstract: Sixteen species are added to the 2009 checklist of Wisconsin Geadephaga(1). Of these, seven species(2) are reported here as new to Wisconsin. Nine taxa from the list are affected by new information resulting in the removal of six names. The Eurasian beetle Harpalus rubripes (Duftschmid) was discovered as early as 2009 on annually surveyed beaches along Lake Michigan in southeastern Wisconsin. This discovery greatly extends the species distribution westward from its presence in northeastern North America where it was first recorded in 1981.
