After long search for the types of a couple of Lathrobium species
(Insecta: Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) described by G. Czwalina at
the end of XIXth century I got an evidence that they

addressing my querry here. I really hope that probably colleagues
from Baltic states may help. I would be thankful for any contact data
which would allow me to get in touch to this institution.
