Abstract:  Floristic notes are presented on 53 taxa of Laboulbeniales from various parts of the Palaearctic Region and one taxon from Taiwan. New species records are given for 33 countries or islands. Special attention is paid to the U.S.S.R., for which there are only scattered records in the litterature. The northernmost records of Laboulbeniales are reported from Tit-Ary (Rickia hyperborea Balazuc) and Bulun (Laboulbenia vulgaris Peyritsch), by the Lena River, north of 70°N in Yakutia.
Laboulbenia egens Spegazzini, occurring on the carabidicolous genus Tachys (s.Iat.), is recognized as a species separate from L. pedicellala Thaxter, occurring on the genera Bembidion ( and Dyschirius. The variability of L. pedicellata is discussed. Five new taxa are described: Laboulbenia broscosomae n.sp. on Broscosoma baldense Rosenh. from Italy, L. eubradycelli n.sp. on Bradycellus spp. from many European countnes, L. kobilae n.sp. on Neotrechus sururalis ssp. suturalis Schr. from Yugoslavia, L. marvinii n.sp. on Bembidion dentellum (Thunb.) and B. starki Schaum from Austria, the Federal Republic of Germany and France, and L. luxurians subsp. immaculata n.subsp. on Bembidion semipunctatum (Donovan) from Austria and the Leningrad Region in the U.S.S.R.
