ABSTRACT. The genus Teuchophorus Loew, 1857 in the Palearctic Region is reviewed. It comprises 21 species including a new species Teuchophorus israelensis Grichanov, Negrobov et Selivanova sp.n. from Israel. The species is very close to T. chaetifemoratus Pollet et Kechev, 2007, differing from the latter in presence of 3–4 strong ventral bristles on mid tibia and ventral row of bristly hairs on hind tibia. An updated catalog and revised key to species of Palearctic Teuchophorus are provided.
