Abstract: The present work is devoted only to those terrestrial Heteroptera collected by

species, subspecies-and forms of the Heteroptera (329 tn total) are given. They
belong to 192 genera in 15 families. On the basis of the observations a
preliminary eco-zoogeographical biotopes was at-tempted. All the species may be
refered to eleven biogeographical groups. From the material collected the
following species were described: Rhinocoris (Oncauchenius} kiritshenkoi Y.
Pop., Plinthisus (s. str.) horvathi Y. Pop., Emblethis nigricans Y. Pop.,
Trigonosoma Y. Pop., Plinthisus (s. str.) cautus Y. Pop., Emblethis nigricans Y.
Pop., Trigonosoma maracandicum Osh. and also Nysius helveticus f.
