ABSTRACT. A new species, Holcoptera rasnitsyni sp.n. (Coleoptera: Coptoclavidae), is described based on four specimens from the Upper Triassic (Upper Carnian–Lower Norian) of east Ukraine. The attribution of these fossils to Coptoclavidae is confirmed by analysis of hind wing venation. The generic name Stargelytron Ponomarenko, 2015 is synonymized under Holcoptera Handlirsch, 1907, syn.n.

KEY WORDS: fossil beetles, new species, Triassic, Ukraine.
