Abstract


Six new species of the bryophiline genus Athaumasta Hampson, 1906 are described from the mountains of north-eastern and eastern Kazakhstan, Russian Altai and Western Mongolia: A. dzhungarica Volynkin & Saldaitis, sp. nov. (W Mongolia), A. kurchuma Volynkin & Titov, sp. nov. (E Kazakhstan), A. arida Volynkin & Saldaitis, sp. nov. (SE Russian Altai and W Mongolia), A. etugen Volynkin & Saldaitis, sp. nov. (W Mongolia), A. tarbagata Volynkin, Titov & Saldaitis, sp. nov. (E Kazakhstan) and A. kuchinichi Volynkin, Titov & Saldaitis, sp. nov. (NE Kazakhstan). The species status of new taxa is proved based on morphological and molecular data as well. The checklist of valid taxa of the genus is provided. Adults and genitalia of new and related species are illustrated. The habitats of the new and some related species are illustrated.
