In the first half of this paper, a key is given to the Palaearctic species of the genus Psila, including notes on the distribution of each. In the 2nd half, details are given of 28 species that have been recorded from Siberia, the Soviet Far East and adjacent areas of China and Mongolia. These include some species of economic importance, notably P. rosae. Twelve species are described as new. New subspecies are erected and new combinations and synonymies are proposed.
