Abstract

Based on material collected by the authors in the South Caucasus mainly in 2014-2018, further data are provided on the taxonomy, distribution, and ecology of the Carabus Linnaeus, 1758 subgenus Lipaster Motchulsky, 1866. C. stjernvalli paravanicus subsp. nov. is described from the vicinity of lake Paravani and C. stjernvalli kartalinicus subsp. nov.—from the NE Trialeti Mountain Range and its vicinity. The subspecific status of C. stjernvalli bogatshevi Zamotajlov, 1989 is resurrected.
