Two taxa – hecticus O.Bang-Haas, 1927 and japonicus Inoue, 1982 till now regarded as subspecies of Phymatopus hectus (Linnaeus, 1758) are separated from the latter as distinct species. A new subspecies Phymatopus hecticus albomaculatus ssp. n. is described from Russia (Primorskii krai or Primorye territory). The diagnostic features of all discussed taxa in forewing pattern and in male genitalia are presented in the key.
