The species of the aquatic beetle family Haliplidae that occur in Mongolia are reviewed. A total of eight species in the genus Haliplus Latreille, 1802 are known from the country, including four here newly recorded: Haliplus basinotatus Zimmerman, 1924, H. fulvus (Fabricius, 1801), H. furcatus Seidlitz, 1887 and H. simplex Clark, 1863. New locality records are provided for H. steppensis Guignot, 1954 and H. sibirieus Motschulsky, 1860. Prior published Mongolian records of H. apicalis Thomson, 1868 were misidentified and this species is not currently known from the country. A key to the species of Haliplidae occurring in Mongolia and surrounding regions is provided.
