A revision of material from the stored product pest collection of the Research Institute of Crop Production, Prague, was carried out. While so far five species of Trogoderma (all synanthropic) have been known from the Czech Republic, the revision revealed two new species and two new stored product pests for the Czech Republic: T. longisetosum and T. variabile. A key to determine T. longisetosum and T. glabrum is given. Faunistic records of the former quarantine species T. granarium are listed.
