Diagnosis.

Quedius equus  distinctly differs from all other species of the mutilatus  -group by the deep apical incision of the paramere and by low number (1-3) of sensory peg setae on its underside arranged in lateral longitudinal rows.

Distribution.

Quedius equus  is known from north-east Terskey-Alatoo Mountains in Kazakhstan and from Xinjiang province of China. Presumably it has a broader continuous distribution in this area.
