Otiorhynchus schuberti sp. n. (subgenus Dibredus Reitter, 1912) is described from Kahramanmaraş Province in Southeastern Turkey. It is closely related to O. nudiformis Reitter, 1914 and, less closely, to O. rufimanus Hochhuth, 1847, but differs from both in a small bidentate tooth on the fore femur. © 2016, Pleiades Publishing, Inc.

The systematic positions of the genus Plutodiplosisis, new to the Russian fauna and belonging to the supertribe Lestodiplosidi, stat. n., and the rare genus Triommatomyia [Aphidoletidi (Aphidoletini)] are updated. The two genera are similar in the presence of strongly prolonged sensorial loops of the male flagellomeres. The diagnoses for Aphidoletidi and Lestodiplosidi are supplemented. The genus Plutodiplosis is new to the Russian fauna and includes five species: P. heterofila, P. magnifica, P. festasp. n., P. raphani (Barnes), comb. n. (from Lestodiplosis), and P. venusta (Gagné), comb. n. (from Lestodiplosis). The genus Triommatomyia includes two species, T. barnesi and T. papillata; a supplemented description of the latter is included. Keys to the species of the genera Plutodiplosis and Triommatomyia are given. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Inc.

Data on 15 species of the subgenus Pseudotiorhynchus Magnano, 2004 of the genus Otiorhynchus Germar, 1822 from Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Iran are given. Otiorhynchus lukarevskayae Davidian, sp. n., O. karakalensis Davidian et Savitsky, sp. n., O. konstantini Davidian et Savitsky, sp. n., O. muratovi Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n., O. kopetdagicus Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n., and O. shakhensis Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n. from Turkmenistan, and O. khorasanus Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n. from Iran are described as new to science. A new synonymy is established: Pseudotiorhynchus Magnano, 2004 = Crassorhynchus Magnano, 2004, syn. n.Otiorhynchus iranensis Magnano, 2004 is transferred from the subgenus Protarammichnus Voss, 1960 to the subgenus Pseudotiorhynchus. Lectotype of O. conicirostris Stierlin, 1886 is designated. A key to 15 species of the subgenus Pseudotiorhynchus is given. The new subgenus Microhanibotus Savitsky et Davidian, subgen. n. is established for the new species O. ghilarovi Davidian et Savitsky, sp. n. from the Western Kopet Dagh in Turkmenistan. Microhanibotus subgen. n. is closely related to the subgenera Pseudotiorhynchus, Hanibotus Reitter, 1912 and Nubidanus Reitter, 1912. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Inc.
