In this study we are going to present some Northern Albanian Coleoptera species, endangered in their habitats,which have also their perilous categories at the national level based on the Red List of IUCN (International Union for the Protection of Nature). There are exactly 12 Coleoptera species with their risked categories: VU (6 species), EN (2 species), LR (2 species), CR (2 species). These data are derivative of a several-year monitoring, based on expeditions carried out in different areas of the country.We think that there are lots of causes of their peril, but the most important to be highlighted are the destruction of their habitats, the collection before egg emplacement, chemical ?organic contamination of waters (for water insects) etc. To prevent these risks we should take measures for the protection and preservation of the habitats, to elude commercial collections. Meanwhile, we should investigate thoroughly on ecological research and should monitor endangered species and their habitats, especially those from EN category (Calosoma sycophanta, Gymnopleurus mopsus) and CR category (Osomderma eremite, Rosalia alpina).
