Material examined: RUSSIA: KRASNODAR TERRITORY: Khostinskiy District: 1 ♀: Khosta, 17.VI. 1988, V.B. Semenov leg. (cVS); ADYGEA: Maikopskiy District: 1 Ƌ: Guzeripl´, window trap, 8–26.VI. 2001, A.R. Bibin leg. (cVS); KARACHAY- CHERKESSIA: Karachay District: 1 Ƌ, 1 ♀: Teberdinskiy Biosphere Reserve, Teberda, VII. 2011, E.A. Khachikov leg. (cIE).

Additional material examined: RUSSIA: REPUBLIC OF CRIMEA: Yalt a: 6 Ƌ, 6 ♀: Vinogradniy, S slope of Uragai Ridge, 500 m, beech forest, 28.V. 1999, D.S. Shchigel΄ leg.

(cVS); Alushta: 11 Ƌ, 16 ♀: Kosʹmo-Damianovskiy Mon[astery], 23.VI. [19]08, V. Pliginskiy leg. ( ZIN); 1 Ƌ: ibid., 18.VI. [19] 11, V. Pliginskiy leg. ( ZIN); 1 Ƌ: ibid., 28.V. [1] 920, V. Pliginskiy leg. ( ZIN).

Distribution. C & N Europe, European part of Russia ( Goreslavets 2010), Caucasus, Turkey (Jacobson 1909, Öncüer 1991), SE Kazakhstan ( Kashcheev 2001). Records of G. nitidula   from Siberia (Jacobson 1909, Tichomirova 1973) are probably doubtful.

Taxonomic notes. After two descriptions of Encephalus kraatzi   made independently by Hochhhuth (1872) from Ukraine and Solsky (1875) from E Siberia there has been much confusion regarding their synonymy with G. nitidula ( Enushchenko & Shavrin 2011)   . The descriptions are quite different and do not contain characters of the species of the genus Gyrophaena   . Shilov (1977) studied the type of E. kraatzi Hochhuth   and proposed a new combination: Brachida kraatzi ( Hochhuth, 1872)   . The type material of Solsky has not been studied, thus the taxonomic status of E. kraatzi Solsky, 1875   still is unclear.

Remarks. G. nitidula   was recorded for Caucasus (Khosta) by Nikitskiy & al. (2008).
