Quedius (Microsaurus) tadjikiscus Coiffait, 1975 

Quedius tadjikiscus  Coiffait, 1975, 32 (original description); 1978, 149 (notes).

Comments on taxonomy.

We could not locate and examine the type material of Q. tadjikiscus  described from "Tadjikabad, Daran-Nazaran" in Tajikistan, and did not come across any material that could be identified as that species. The description and the illustrations of the aedeagus of Q. tadjikiscus  available from Coiffait (1975, 1978) suggest that this may be a species very similar to Q. koltzei  . But Quedius tadjikiscus  differs from Q. koltzei  in the presence of three punctures in the dorsal row of pronotum and the absence of apical groups of peg setae on the paramere.
