Coleoptera research was conducted in the Mlyňany Arboretum of SAS (48°19'12''N, 18°22'09''E) in 2013. Once per week monitoring was carried out from late April to early October. During the sample collection process, an occurrence of Scobicia chevrieri (Villa & Villa 1835) from the Bostrichidae family has been recorded. It is considered to be the first record of this powderpost beetle species in the Slovak Republic. An imago was caught in a light trap which uses UV tubes in combination with white light. Its potential host plant seems to be Quercus robur L., or other Quercus species found in the Mlyňany Arboretum of SAS.
