Abstract: Background and purpose: Calosoma auropunctatum (Herbst) is the species with no confirmed records in the last 150 years in the Latvian fauna. Until now, the species was considered probably extinct in this area. The species was confirmed for Latvia in 2014, during the research project devoted to biodiversity monitoring in various agrocenoses with different management systems. The aim of this paper is to clarify habitat peculiarities of the species in Latvia and discuss the possibilities of widest distribution of this species in Easter Baltic region. Materials and methods: The study site is located in the eastern part of Latvia. The ground beetles were collected from May 2014 to August 2015 using pitfall traps, installed in 2 linear transects located at the field margin and in the central part of the field, more than 100 m far away from the field border. Results: One male and three females were caught by pitfall traps during vegetation period in course of 2014–2015 years. Calosoma specimens deposited in coleopterological collections in Latvia were reviewed. Previous record of this species in Latvia based on specimen deposited in Latvian Museum of Natural History is disproved. In addition, the paper presents information on the geographical distribution and biology of the species. Conclusions: The first proven findings of C. auropunctatum in Latvia was presented during two field season’s, that suggest a presumption of occurring of small, local population of this species in territory of Latvia
