Abstract: This preliminary check-list of the water beetle families Haliplidae, Gyrinidae, Noteridae, Dytiscidae, Hydraenidae, Helophoridae, Spercheidae, Hydrophilidae, Scirtidae and Elmidae of the Novohradské hory Mts. is based on faunistic surveys carried out in the framework of the project MSM J06/98:124100001 at localities within the Novohradské hory Protected Landscape Area and along its southwestern border. The results are supplemented by other faunistic data of the authors. The recorded species are typical of well-preserved foothill areas; most of the species are either euryoecious or preferring rather cold and/or acid habitats. The following important bioindicator species have been recorded so far: Ilybius crassus C.G. Thomson, 1856 and Crenitis punctatostriata (Letzner, 1840) (tyrphobionts); other acido- and tyrphophils include Agabus congener (Thunberg, 1794), Hydroporus gyllenhalii Schiödte, 1841, H. obscurus Sturm, 1835, H. tristis (Paykull, 1798) and H. umbrosus (Gyllenhal, 1808). Elmis rioloides (Kuwert, 1890) is recorded from Bohemia for the first time.
