Tiger beetles typically have specific habitat requirements and because of this, and their ease of identification, can serve as useful indicators of ecosystem condition. However, in northern Ontario, Canada, especially the Far North, distribution information for tiger beetles is generally historic or lacking.We conducted tiger beetle inventories across northern Ontario, including the remote Far North, in an attempt to provide updated distribution information on species known from or adjacent to Ontario. Here, we report several new range extensions for tiger beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Cicindelinae) in Ontario, including Cicindela tranquebarica Herbst, Cicindela longilabris Say, Cicindela duodecimguttata Dejean, and Cicindela repanda Dejean.We also confirm and provide updates for the distribution of several additional species collected in previous studies. Several other previously reported species were not located in this study. Our efforts provide a contemporary update on the ranges and distribution of these beetles.
