Scolytids constitute an insect group of forest ecosystems that is
very important both ecologically and economically, and which has been
well studied in most European countries. However, new species are found
quite often, especially in regions searched less intensively to date. In this
paper three species of scolytid fauna not previously known in Romania
are reported for the first time: Trypodendron laeve, Xylosandrus germanus
and Hylastes linearis. Individuals of all three species were collected in the
north-eastern part of Romania. T. laeve was found only in natural coniferous
forests, at altitudes above 1230 m and in association with T. lineatum,
but in much lower abundance. The Asian species X. germanus was
found in an old beech forest situated at a much higher altitude (760-900
m) than observed in western and central Europe. The third species, H.
linearis, was captured as a single specimen in a plateau region (375 m).
