  Abstract:  

This paper presents a study of Apionidae (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) that inhabit the surroundings of Cluj-Napoca, therefore providing additional information on the distribution of these insects in Romania. In order to asses species diversity, we have sampled biological material from April to June 2008. The sampling stations included two anthropic (orchards, pastures) and three non-anthropic (deciduous and coniferous forest, meadow) habitats. A number of 18 species belonging to 8 genera were recorded. Among these species, we noticed the presence of two rare ones not reported previously in Cluj-Napoca, namely Eutrichapion (Psilocalymma) facetum (Gyllenhal, 1859) and Eutrichapion (Psilocalymma) punctiger (Paykull, 1792). The identified species belong to four zoogeographical elements.

Keywords: Apionidae, Bray-Curtis index, ecology, diversity, multivariate analysis (MVA).
