KEY WORDS: new generic name, new synonymy, new taxonomic interpretations.

ABSTRACT. The new name Lepichelus Kirejtshuk et Poinar, nom.n. is proposed for Lepiceroides Kirejtshuk et Poinar, 2013, non Schedl, 1957 (Lepiceridae). The synonymy Cervicatinius Tan et Ren, 2007 = Sinopeltis Yu, Leschen, Slipinski, Ren et Pang, 2012, syn.n. (Trogossitidae) and Forticatinius Tan et Ren, 2007 = Paracretocateres Yu, Ślipiński, Leschen, Ren et Pang, 2015 syn.n. (Trogossitidae) were established. Some species of the family Eulichadidae are considered without generic attribution. Some corrections were made for the catalogue of Trogossitidae by Kolibáč [2013], including the taxon Lithostomatini Kolibáč et Huang, 2008 is regarded without family and superfamily attribution (?Polyphaga, incertae sedis). For Smicrips cretacea Cai et Huang, 2016 (Smicripidae) was proposed a new genus Mesosmicrips Kirejtshuk, gen.n. (Mesosmicrips cretacea comb.n.).
