The study of Coleopterans (the beetles) seems a scientific and practice necessity, taking in consideration their frequency on Terra meridians, the big number of species contained (across 250. 000), the biggest from class Insecta, which group more than one million species, and the numerous species that damage the world agriculture. Collected of the material was made with the Barber soil traps, from an apple tree plantation, ecologically sustained, from the orchard region of Falticeni, Suceava district. The observations were made in 2007; the biological material have been gathered from June to October. Collected of the biological material have been done from 8 to 17 days period of time, totally being effectuated a number of 11 collecteds. The most frequent collected species were: Opatrum sabulosum L., Otiorrhynchus raucus F., Carabus violaceus L., Pseudophonus rufipes, Ophonus puncticollis Payk., Harpalus aeneus F. şi Amara apricaria Payk.
