Taxonomic notes. Scheerpelz & Höfler (1948), based on a common character of long, filiform and slender antennae of some Gyrophaena   species, erected the subgenus Leptarthrophaena   including G. affinis   , G. nitidula   ( Gyllenhal, 1810), G. o b s o l e t a Ganglbauer 1895, G. pulchella Heer 1839   , and G. rosskotheni Wüsthoff 1937   . Blackwelder (1952) designated G. affinis   as type species of this subgenus. Long before, Rey (1886) described the larva of G. affinis   . According to his description it could be any species of Gyrophaena sensu   stricto ( White 1977, Ashe 1986). Seevers (1951) treated Leptarthrophaena   as an unnatural subgenus. He noted that “…it is impossible to separate Gyrophaena   into subgenera on the basis of antennal characters” ( Seevers 1951: 671). Most subsequent authors did not use this name ( Hansen 1954, Likovský 1964, Lohse 1974, White 1977, Burakowski & al. 1981, Campbell & Davies 1991, Gouix & Klimaszewski 2007, Klimaszewski & al. 2009, 2011). Smetana (2004) and Schülke & Smetana (2015) has cited this subgenus as a valid taxon, but without most originally included species by Scheerpeltz & Höfler (1948).

We believe that there are enough arguments to not use the subgeneric name Leptarthrophaena   in the present study.

Remarks. The first records of G. affinis   for Caucasus were published by Eppelsheim (1878: Mt. Sarijal near Elisavetpol [now Ganja]) and Reitter (1888: "Circassien" [NW Caucasus]). Roubal (1911) recorded G. affinis   for Krasnaya Polyana; Eichler (1930 a) recorded it for Mtskheta ( Georgia). Seevers (1951) mentioned G. affinis   for Caucasus without specific data. Nikitskiy & al. (2008) cited G. affinis   for the Caucasian Nature Reserve (Khosta and Guzeripl').

The species is here reported for the Russian Far East for the first time.
