ABSTRACT: Adults of eight species of beetles in the subfamily Elaphrinae (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Elaphrinae) were collected in the Far North of Ontario and on Akimiski Island, Nunavut, Canada. We found first records for Nunavut (territory) of seven species: Blethisa julii LeConte, 1863; Blethisa quadricollis Haldeman, 1847; Diacheila arctica (Gyllenhal, 1810); Elaphrus americanus Dejean, 1831; Elaphrus lecontei Crotch, 1876; Elaphrus clairvillei Kirby, 1837; and Elaphrus fuliginosus Say, 1830. Our record of one species, Elaphrus californicus Mannerheim, 1843, is a new range record for the province of Ontario.

Note: The seven species newly reported for the Canadian territory Nunavut are entered into the post-2012 Registry of Nearctic Caraboidea.
