Nupponen, K. & Nupponen, T. 2001: Pterophorus poculidactyla sp. n. from the Altai Mountains (Lepidoptera: Pterophoridae). - Entomol. Fennica 12: 50-52.

Pterophorus poculidactyla sp. n. is described from the Altai Mountains. Two male specimens were collected by net in late June 2000 on an alpine meadow at an elevation of 2500 m. The new taxon is a close relative to P. volgensis (Möschler, 1862) and P. taklamakanus (Arenberger, 1995) but differs from both these species externally and by details in the male genitalia.
