New faunistic data on the occurrence of terrestrial true-bugs on Western Beskidy are presented. In total, the paper presents the data concerning 218 species of Heteroptera collected on over ninty different stations, including the first record of Brachycarenus tigrinus (Schilling, 1829), Charagochilus spiralifer Kerzhner, 1988, Chilacis typhae (Perris, 1857), Coptosoma scutellatum (Geoffroy, 1785), Dicyphus epilobii Reuter, 1883, Nabis lineatus Dahlbom, 1851, Polymerus palustris (Reuter, 1907), Rhyparochromus vulgaris (Schilling, 1829), Sphragisticus nebulosus (Fallén, 1807), Taphropeltus contractus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1835), and Tingis ampliata (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1838) in Western Beskidy Mts. The paper also presents a summary of current knowledge about the distribution of Heteroptera in Western Beskidy Mts and gives an updated checklist of species known from this region. In addition, an attempt to compare the species biodiversity of true-bugs in urban and non-urbanized areas was made.
