COMMENTS. The first record in the province and the southernmost point o fdistribution. Baikalo-Manchurianboreo­ nemoral range. Known from Chita Area (personal data) to Chukotka on the north [ Marusik et al., 1992; 69°N, sub G. muscorum] to the south to the Maritime Province [Ovtsharenko etal., 1992: sUbC. muscorum] and eastern Mongolia (personal data). Being described from Kamchatka, this species was recently [ Ovtsharenko et al., 1992] synonymised under Holarc­ tic C. muscorum (L. Koch, 1866). Study o f topotypes, as well as o f numerous specimens from Yakutia, Chita and Magadan areas reveals that G. similis  is an independent species, being very similar to G. muscorum. Males o f these species can be separated by the shape and position of outgrowth on the base of embolus (cf. Figs. 8-9). Females o f two species differ by shape and direction o f accessorial glands.
