ABSTRACT. Species of the tribe Hylastini Erichson, 1836 from Russia and adjacent countries are reviewed and keys to genera and species of the tribe are provided. Data on synonymy, geographic distribution and host-plants of all Hylastini species of Russia and neighboring states are given in an annotated list of species. Special attention is given to a poorly known subendemic species of Hylastini, Hylastes substriatus Strohmeyer, 1914 breeding on Schrenk spruce and limited in the distribution by the Tien-Shan mountains, i.e. by states of Middle Asia and neighboring provinces of China. New synonymy is established: Hylurgops imitator (Reitter, 1900), syn.n. of Hylurgops interstitialis (Chapuis, 1875).

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Scolytinae, Hylastini, Hylastes, Hylurgops, bark beetles, taxonomy, Russia, endemics, countries of the former USSR.
