Abstract : Tenebrionidae specimens collected by pitfall traps and hibernation trap-bands in Bozdağlar Mountain, western Turkey during the years of 2003-2007 have been evaluated. A total of 14 species belonging to two subfamilies and some ecological considerations on those species were given. The species are (alphabetic order): Blaps jeannei Ferrer & Soldati 1999; Dailognatha quadricollis Brullé 1832; Graecopachys quadricollis (Brullé 1836); Idastrandiella mucoreus (Waltl 1838); Pachyscelis villosa (Drapiez 1820); Pimelia subglobosa polita Soliér 1836; Tentyria rotundata mittrei Soliér 1835; Zophosis punctata Brullé 1832 in the subfamily Pimeliinae; Dendarus messenius Brullé 1832; Euboeus mimonti Boieldieu 1865; Gonocephalum granulatum pusillum (Fabricius 1791); Odocnemis crenatostriatus (Allard 1877); Opatroides punctulatus Brullé 1832; Probaticus tenebricosus (Brullé 1832) in the subfamily Tenebrioninae. Dailognatha quadricollis and Pimelia subglobosa polita were the most abundant species in the study with percentages of 39,7 % and 26,8 %, respectively
