(G.) subnudus (Edwards), G. (R.) brumalis (Edwards), G. (R.) kamimegavirgus Sasa et Hirabayashi and G. (R.) tairaprimus Sasa et Okazawa, the last two species of which were recorded for Russia for the first time. The high morphological similarity of species by adult males of this genus is noted. The distribution of species is clarified and taxonomic comments provided, together with a key to adult males of the Far Eastern species.
