Type material examined.

Drymeia longiseta   Sorokina & Pont. Holotype male labelled " Russia, Republic Altai / Kosh-Agash area, 7 km NW/ Kuray , 2251 m, Kurayskiy / mt. ridge, 50°17'N, 87°51'E / Coll. V. Sorokina , 17.07.2013 "; " Holotype / Drymeia longiseta   ♂ / Sorokina & Pont sp.n. [red]" ( SZMN). Paratypes: 1 male, same as previous but " Paratype / Drymeia longiseta   ♂ / Sorokina & Pont sp.n. [red]" ( BUIC). 1 male, 2 females labelled " Russia, Republic Altai / Kosh-Agash area S slope/ of Kurayskiy mt. ridge,/ 2726 m. 50°18'N, 87°51'E / Coll. V. Sorokina, 19.07.2013 "; " Paratype / Drymeia longiseta   ♂ [or ♀]/ Sorokina & Pont sp. n. [red]" ( BUIC) GoogleMaps   .

Other material examined.

Over 400 males and females from: Nearctic: USA: Colorado: Corona Pass, Cottonwood Pass , Estes Park , Loveland Pass , Mt. Evans , Nederland , Niwot Ridge , Summit Lake ( Mt. Evans ) ( CNC)   .

Distribution.

Nearctic: USA (Colorado). Palaearctic: Russia (Altai-Sayan region).

DNA Barcode.

BOLDBIN: BOLD:ACT4320. See Suppl. material 1: Table S1 for GenBank accession numbers.

Remarks.

The comparison of type material from D. longiseta   Sorokina and Pont from Russia with a series of high elevation specimens from Colorado, USA, housed in the CNC and matching the original description of D. spinitarsis   has led us to recognise D. longiseta   as a junior synonym of D. spinitarsis   . This change effectively expands the distribution of D. spinitarsis   to the Palaearctic region and while DNA barcodes are currently only available for Russian specimens, D. spinitarsis   is such a large, distinctive species (strong spines on mid tarsomere 1, distinctive chaetotaxy of fore and mid coxae in the male, high elevation distribution) that we are quite confident in this new synonymy   .
