Three species of the genus Poecilus Bonelli, 1810: P. cupreus (L.), P. versicolor (Sturm) and P. lepidus (Leske) inhabit the agrolandscapes in Northwestern Russia. Two the most numerous species are P. cupreus and P. versicolor. They differ by the areas they occupy and their abundance on the various parts of a landscape. P. cupreus occurred mostly on the fields, more rarely – on their boundaries. P. versicolor lives mostly on the field boundaries but can be also seen on the cultivated lands and forest edges. Some P. lepidus individuals can be observed only on dry and warmed open areas. The population of the ground beetles of the genus Poecilus varies significantly between the field and its boundaries.
