ABSTRACT. The description of a new species Dolichopus ulaganensis sp.n. from the Kurai Mountain Ridge of the Russian Altai is given. The new species closely allied to Dolichopus fraterculus Zett., but distinctly differs by longer the 3rd antennal segment (in the new species its length in 1,5 times as long as its width whereas in D. fraterculus the length of the 3rd antennal segment almost equal of its width) and by another shape of male genitalia. Due to the large intraspecific variability of the color of legs in Dolichopus fraterculus Zetterstedt, 1843 and the absence of any hiatus in their color, we consider it inappropriate to select the subspecies Dolichopus fraterculus nigrifemur Stackelberg, 1930 syn.n.

KEY WORDS: new species, Dolichopus, high mountains of Altai, changing of taxonomical status of Dolichopus fraterculus nigrifemur Stackelberg.1930.
