Abstract

The paper presents new faunistic data for 28 species of Rhaphium from Russia and supplements the previous data on species distribution. New faunistic data is given for the following species: Rhaphium albifrons Zetterstedt, 1843, Rh. antennatum (Carlier, 1835), Rh. appendiculatum Zetterstedt, 1849, Rh. basale Loew, 1850, Rh. boreale Van Duzee, 1923, Rh. caliginosum Meigen, 1824, Rh. commune (Meigen, 1824), Rh. confine Zetterstedt, 1843, Rh. dichromum Negrobov, 1976, Rh. discolor Zetterstedt 1838, Rh. dispar Coquillett 1898, Rh. elegantulum Meigen, 1824, Rh. fasciatum Meigen, 1824, Rh. fascipes (Meigen, 1824), Rh. flavilabre Negrobov, 1979, Rh. glaciale Ringdahl, 1920, Rh. latimanum Kahanpää 2007, Rh. longicorne (Fallen, 1823), Rh. monotrichum Loew 1850, Rh. nasutum (Fallen, 1823), Rh. nigribarbatum Becker, 1900, Rh. patellitarse Becker, 1900, Rh. richterae Negrobov, 1977, Rh. riparium (Meigen 1824), Rh. rivale Loew, 1869, Rh. suavis Loew, 1859, Rh. tripartitum Frey 1913, and Rh. umbripenne (Frey, 1915). Seven rare species (Rhaphium basale, Rh. boreale, Rh. confine, Rh. dispar, Rh. fasciatum, Rh. flavilabre and Rh. longicorne) are recorded for the first time in one or two Russian regions. At present, there are 71 species in the genus Rhaphium known from Russia.

Introduction

The genus Rhaphium (Meigen, 1803), included in the subfamily Rhaphiinae, is composed of 200 species, considering unpublished data (Negrobov et al. 2013a; Grishanov 2017). O.P. Negrobov (1979) published the first revision of the Palaearctic species of this genus; all presented species were described, and key to the Palearctic species was presented. The last key to the female species belonging to Rhaphium was provided in 2017 (Kleschevnikova and Negrobov 2017). In addition, a checklist of Dolichopodidae of Russia was supplemented by the current year faunistic records included 66 species of Rhaphium (Negrobov et al. 2013a).

The following three species were not included in genus Rhaphium for Russia (Negrobov 1979, 1986; Yang et al. 2006): Rhaphium doroteum Negrobov, 1979, described from the Irkutsk region and Primorye, Rhaphium terminale igorjani Negrobov, 1986 and Rh. neolatifacies Yang et Wang, 2006 described from Sakhalin Island. Then I.Ya Grichanov provided the new species for Russian fauna (Rhaphium nigrum (Van Duzee, 1923) from Chukotka Peninsula (Grichanov 2018).

The genus was revised for the Palearctis Region by Negrobov (Negrobov 1979) and nine species and one subspecies were reported from Russia: Rhaphium terminale igorjani Negrobov, 1986, Rh. jamalense Negrobov, 1986, Rh. macalpini Negrobov, 1986 and Rh. neolatifacies Yang et Wang, 2006, Rh. jonrichardi Negrobov et Grichanov, 2010, Rh. brooksi Negrobov, Barkalov et Selivanova, 2011, Rh. subtridactium Negrobov, Barkalov et Selivanova, 2011 and Rh. sibiricum Negrobov, Barkalov et Selivanova, 2011, Rh. borisovi Negrobov, Barkalov et Selivanova, 2012, Rh. caucasicum Negrobov, Grichanov et Selivanova 2013 (Negrobov 1986; Negrobov and Onishchenko 1991; Negrobov and Grichanov 2010; Negrobov et al. 2011, 2012, 2013b).

Material and methods

We examined the specimens from the collection of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ZISP) and the collection of Department of Ecology and Systematics of Invertebrates of Voronezh State University (VU). In addition, several specimens were examined from the collection of the Zoological Museum of Moscow State University (ZMMU).
