The preliminary determination of the atmospheric chemical composition of the Li "spotted" roAp star HD 83368 has been obtained by the synthetic spectrum method. The locations of two lithium spots are determined by the procedure of "mapping", based on the Doppler line shifts for different rotation phases.

Key words: stars: abundances – stars: chemically peculiar – stars: individual: HD 83368 – stars: magnetic fields – stars: starspots

* Based on observations collected at the European Southern Observatory, La Silla, Chile
