Despite the long tradition of fauna research in northern Poland, the knowledge about the distribution of true bugs in this part of the country is still poor, especially when compared to the southern regions of Poland. The last five years of research have deepened these differences even more. The presented faunistic data are based on materials and observations from field studies on 60 sites. Museum data was also used. Moreover, selected species are discussed in more detail, especially the case of an unusual, dark colouration of the hind tibia of Trapezonotus dispar. In the Szary Dwór on the Baltic Coast, a specimen with a different colour of the hind legs was collected. The existence of this type of colouration was already mentioned by Péricart in his monograph, citing individuals from the population of the Pyrenees.
