Carpelimus punctatellus (Erichson, 1840) (Staphylinidae) was found using suction sampling in a xerotherm ruderal area in the city of Malmö. Meligethes sulcatus Brisout de Barneville, 1863 (Nitidulidae) have been shown to occur on Lamium album in eastern Småland. Diaclina fagi (Panzer, 1799) (Tenebrionidae) was found in numbers in the province of Öland in agricultural remains with mouldy grains and peas. Psylliodes reitteri Weise, 1888 (Chrysomelidae) has been found in Scania on one occasion in two specimens in a suitable habitat.
