Possible traces of feeding by wood-boring beetle larvae (Coleoptera, ?Permocupedidae) are described from the Middle Permian locality Tikhie Gory (Tatarstan, right bank of the Kama River, Kazanian Stage). The traces in the form of perpendicular tunnels and shafts were left in picnoxylic wood of some coniferophytes s.l. (the orders Pinales, Cordaitales, or Vojnovskyales).
