The annotated list of 26 species and 16 genera of Coccinellidae from the Tigirek strict nature reserve is presented. Fifteen species are newly recorded for this region: Scymnus frontalis (Fabricius, 1787); Hyperaspis reppensis (Herbst, 1783); Hyperaspis erythrocephala (Fabricius, 1787); Exochomus quadripustulatus (Linnaeus, 1758); Coccinula sinuatomarginata (Faldermann, 1837); Tytthaspis sedecimpunctata (Linnaeus, 1761); Tytthaspis gebleri (Mulsant, 1850); Myzia gebleri (Crotch, 1874); Propylea quatuordecimpunctata (Linnaeus, 1758); Calvia decemguttata (Linnaeus, 1767); Hippodamia (Hemisphaerica) tredecimpunctata (Linnaeus, 1758); Ceratomegilla undecimnotata (D.H. Schneider, 1792); Coccinella magnificaL. Redtenbacher, 1843; Coccinella nivicola Mulsant, 1850, and Anatisocellata (Linnaeus, 1758).
