The wide distribution ofR. latifrons (LOEW) from Europe to the Kuril islands (Kunashir) is proved. A new species, Rainieria hennigi spec. nov. from Kunashir, is described. It was apparently mentioned before by HENNIG (1938) under the name of R. latifrons. The data on the distribution of R. latifrons in Japan need confirmation. A key to the species of Rainieria RONDANI is given.
