Diagnosis.

Among all species of the group, Quedius kungeicus  can be distinguished by the ovoid apical part of the paramere without a distinct apical incision (in parameral view) and by the distinctly curved apical portion of the median lobe (in lateral view) with longer tip and without distinct sub-apical tooth.

Distribution.

Quedius kungeicus  is known only from the holotype collected in the Kungey-Alatoo Mountains of Kazakhstan.

Subgenus Raphirus  Stephens, 1829
