In the paper based on materials of the Altai State University (Barnaul) and collections of the Institute of Systematics and Ecology of Animals of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences (Novosibirsk), additional data on the distribution in the Altai Krai of 65 species of heteropterans from 13 families of the infraorders Cimicomorpha and Pentatomorpha are given. Bothrostethus annulipes (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1835) of the family Coreidae, presumably unintentionally introduced to Siberia, was found in Barnaul City area. Seven species are recorded for the first time for Altai Krai: Agnocoris rubicundus (Fallén, 1807), Closterotomus samojedorum (J. Sahlberg, 1878) (Miridae); Lasiacantha hermani Vásárhelyi, 1977, Tingis cardui (Linnaeus, 1758) (Tingidae); Scolopostethus pilosus pilosus Reuter, 1875, Raglius alboacuminatus alboacuminatus (Linnaeus, 1778) (Lygaeidae) and Ventocoris halophilus (Jakovlev, 1874) (Pentatomidae). Examples of aberrations of genital structures (male paramere and female parietal vaginal gland) detected in the Altai population of Nabis brevis brevis Scholtz, 1847 are discussed.
