An updated checklist and analysis of biological and biogeographic patterns are presented for mesic montane forest in the region of Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico originally summarized by Noguera and Atkinson (1990). Additional species encountered during recent field work as well as taxonomic and nomenclatorial changes are incorporated. The fauna is dominated by host-generalist ambrosia beetles, especially from the tribe Corthylini. The overall fauna is dominated by species and genera of Neotropical affinity, particularly those found in cooler, intermediate elevations. Species with lowland tropical distributions have larger ranges than those with montane distributions.
