SUMMARY. The composition of clown beetles fauna of the superfamily Histeroidea of the Urals (families Sphaeritidae, Histeridae) is presented. Data are provided for both the Urals Region and adjacent territories of the East European Plain, Western Siberia and Western Kazakhstan. The 2nd part of the review provides detailed information about representatives of the subfamily Saprininae (45 species at the Urals). Hypocaccus (s. str.) rugifrons (Paykull, 1798) is specified for the Perm Area (Perm City environs) for the first time. Generally, there are 1 species of Sphaeritidae and 94 species of Histeridae from 5 subfamilies recorded for the fauna of Coleoptera at the Urals. For the Polar and Circumpolar Urals (Komi Republic) 4 species of Histeroidea are observed; for the Northern Urals 25 species, including 23 species for the Komi Republic, 8 species from the Northern territories of the Perm Area, and 6 species from the North of the Sverdlovsk Province are determined. The 43 species of Histeroidea are recorded at the Middle Urals: 38 species for the Perm Area and 31 species for the Sverdlovsk Province.
