We studied the fauna of leoidid beetles by sampling with carrion-baited traps, between June 2015 to July 2016, in an Acer (maple) dominated cloud forest at Talpa de Allende, Jalisco, Mexico. We collected 1,423 individuals comprising 12 species in 5 genera with the most diversity occurring in the month of July (rainy season). Dissochaetus costaricensis Salgado-Costas was the species with the highest incidence and abundance throughout the sampling. The species D. cristobalensis Peck and Cook, D. lobatus Peck and Cook, and D. ocozocoautla Peck and Cook are all new records for the state of Jalisco. We collected four additional species in the genus Dissochaetus. We consider the collection of specimens in the fungus feeding Leiodine genera Anisotoma, Colenis and Platyhydnobius incidental occurrences.
