An annotated list of Tenebrionidae Latreille, 1802 (Coleoptera Linnaeus, 1758) collected by one of the authors (LS) during the SANTO 2006 expedition is given. It concerns the period covered by the section “Fallow & Aliens” during October 2006. These faunistic data are completed with the description of a new species: Uloma vanuatensis L. Soldati n. sp. Furthermore, biogeographic hypotheses on the colonisation of the Vanuatu archipelago are presented to explain the origin of the tenebrionid fauna.
