The adult male, pupa, and fourth instar larva of Symbiocladius (s. s.) villosus Makarchenko et Makarchenko, sp. n. from the Russian Far East and Japan are described and figured. Adult male of a new species separated from all known species of subgenus by presence of a pair rodshaped chitinized structures which situated above apical parts of phallapodemes, and is closely related to the Palaearctic species S. (s. s.) rhithrogenae and the Nearctic S. (s. s.) chattahoocheensis. S. (s. s.) villosus…

Despite increasing numbers of studies on aquatic insects in South-East European streams, there are still gaps in the knowledge about their distribution and assemblage composition in many regions. As
Distribution of the macrobenthos fauna in the Ola River basin, northern coast of the Sea of Okhotsk
The taxonomic composition of the macrobenthos fauna and its distribution in the main stream and tributaries of the mid-size salmon Ola River, the northern coast of the Sea of Okhotsk, were investigated for the first time and spatial heterogeneity in the distribution of the benthic fauna was shown.
