Calabria is one of the southernmost regions of Italy. The main Calabrian habitats have been sampled with pitfall traps since 1987. Merging field collections with literature data, the known number of species in Calabria is 358 , i.e. 28.5% of the Italian carabid fauna. Owing to the young geological age of the region, only one species (Pterostichus ruffoi Sciaky) is endemic to Calabria. Relationships between Italian endemics, Mediterranean species and habitat types are outlined.
