Abstract : Stenurella bifasciata safronovi ssp. n. is described from South-West Turkey (Antalya, Beldibi env. ? type locality and Isparta). S. bifasciata ssp. intermedia Holzschuh, 2006, new rank originally described as a species from Magnisia, is accepted as a subspecies distributed in Greece from south Peloponnesus to Bulgaria and in SW Bulgaria; several forms of previously unknown females are figured. Stenurella bifasciata ssp. ferruginipes (Pic, 1895), new rank described as a variation from «Bitlis» is accepted as a subspecies distributed in Mardin and Bitlis. S. bifasciata ssp. lanceolata (Mulsant & Rey, 1863), new rank, regarded previosly as a synonym of the nominative subspecies, is accepted as a subspecies distributed in Iberian Peninsula and South-East France. The species area of S. bifasciata (Müller, 1776) is extended eastwards to Pacific Ocean
