ABSTRACT. Two taxa hecticus O.Bang-Haas, 1927 and japonicus Inoue, 1982 till now regarded as subspecies of Phymatopus hectus (Linnaeus, 1758) are separated from the latter as distinct species. A new subspecies Phymatopus hecticus albomaculatus ssp. n. is described from Russia (Primorskii krai or Primorye territory). The diag-nostic features of all discussed taxa in forewing pattern and in male genitalia are presented in the key. KEY WORDS: Hepialidae, taxonomy, East Palaearctic.

P.G. Nemkov and A.S. Lelej. Phylogenetic relationships and classification of the digger wasps tribe Gorytini (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae, Nyssoninae). - Far Eastern entomologist, 1996, 37: 1-14.
ABSTRACT. The digger wasps tribe Gorytini is reviewd, with an extensive reevaluation of generic groupings. Phylogenetic analysis of thirty-three genera, with hypothetical ancestor as outgroup, reveal the relationships: (Ancestor + Clitemnestrina) + {Olgia + (Argogorytina + [Exeirus + (Handlirschia + Gorytina)]}. A tree generated from 33 genera yielded a length of 86 steps and CI of 0,45. The tribe Gorytini id divided into six subtribes: Clitemnistrina subtribe n., Olgiina subtribe n., Argogorytina subtribe n., Exeirina Dalla Torre, Handlirschiana subtribe n., and Gorytina Lep. The key to subtribes is given. KEY WORDS: Sphecidae, digger wasps, Gorytini, phylogeny, taxonomy.
