This contribution deals with additions and corrections to the list of Norwegian Coleoptera. The following three species are reported for the first time from Norway: Nicrophorus interruptus Stephens, 1830 (Silphidae), Triphyllus bicolor (Fabricius, 1777) (Mycetophagidae) and Mordellaria aurofasciata (Comolli, 1837) (Mordellidae). Cryptolaemus montrouzieri Mulsant, 1853 (Coccinellidae) is reported for the first time outside a greenhouse in Norway. This species is frequently used for biological control of mealy-bugs in greenhouses. Scymnus ater Kugelan, 1794 (Coccinellidae) is removed from the Norwegian list. The previous report of this species was based on a misidentification.
