1. Carabus (Lipaster) stjernvalli   subsp.?

( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 )

Material examined. 113♂♂, 94♀♀, Georgia, Samtskhe-Dzhavakheti , Gorelovka vill. env., SW slopes of Madatapa   Mt. near Madatapa Lake, 2285 m, N 41°12’58.80” / E 43°47’46.60”, pitfall traps, 09.06.- 11.07.2018 (D. Fominykh) ( ZISP, MPSU, CFDD, CTAY, CZAM, CEEK).

Remarks. Surprisingly this population resembles more the spatially remote nominotypical subspecies than the neighboring geographic races ( Table 1 View TABLE 1 , Fig. 115 View FIGURE 115 ). Probably it deserves status of a separate taxon, however we still do not have enough comparative material from adjacent territories for a more definite judgment.
