ABSTRACT. This paper reports the first records of four moth species from Novaya Zemlya: Eupithecia gelidata, Rheumaptera subhastata, Entephria byssata (Geometridae), and Udea cf. cacuminicola (Crambidae). The COI barcode data is provided for each species. Molecular sequences suggest that the Lepidoptera fauna of Novaya Zemlya was originated recently via long-distance dispersal of widespread lineages from the mainland.

KEY WORDS: biogeography, Arctic islands, Barents Sea region, Crambidae, Geometridae.
