Summary This supplement comes not only to correct the inaccuracies and mistakes in the authors' monograph of 1997, but also to update the nomenclature, taxonomy and distribution of the Alticinae, or flea beetles, in the Palaearctic subregion. As a result, 83 names of flea beetles are eliminated, mostly as synonyms, while 113 species are added. So the total number of species or subspecies has increased from 1,358 to 1,388. The following three genera are added to the regional list: Aeschrocnemis, Cyrsylus and Heyrovskya. Blagoi Gruev, born 1936, is a lecturer of general biogeography at the University of Plovdiv, the author of the first textbook on this subject in Bulgaria, who also provided an original biogeographical division of the country. He has described 64 new taxa of Chrysomelidae from various parts of the Palaearctic, Oriental and Afrotropical realms. Manfred Döberl, born 1933, has devoted 40 years of his life to teaching and entomology. He has also described numerous new Palaearctic and Oriental flea beetles, published in more than 30 papers
