Vertagopus cinereus ( Nicolet, 1842)  

The species was already recorded in the surveyed region by Stach (1947) in North Ossetia (North Caucasus, Karaugom, 1800 m alt.). The occurrence of V. cinereus   sensu stricto ( Fjellberg 1975) in the Caucasus is confirmed by our numerous records given below. In more eastern areas of Asia, the mostly Asiatic V. pseudocinereus Fjellberg, 1975 probably replaces the European V. cinereus   . In area under study, we did not reveal V. pseudocinereus.
