3.3. Subdivision of present-day Russia

The subdivision of present-day Russia (West- and Eastpalaearctic) is as given in the Catalogue of Palaearctic Diptera (fig. 1), but for all Limoniidae and Pediciidae the subdivision of the European part of Russia follows Fauna Europaea (fig. 2). It is anticipated that this latter subdivision will at some point later also be introduced for the Cylindrotomidea and Tipulidae.

Subdivision of present-day Russia in the Catalogue of Palaearctic Diptera:

NET: North European territory, north of 60° NL.
CET: Central European territory, limited by 60° NL in the north and by 50o in the south.
SET: South European territory south of 50° NL up to the watershed of the main ridge of the Caucasus and bordered by Kazakhstan.
WS: West Siberia, limited by the watershed of the Urals in the west, by the border of Kazakhstan in the south, by the river Yenisei in the east (in the southeast by the river Bolshoy Yenisei).
ES: East Siberia, limited by the river Yenisei in the west and by the border of the Magadan and Khabarovsk regions (oblasts) in the east.
FE: Far East, limited by the border of the Magadan and Khabarovsk regions in the west (incl. Kamchatka, Sakhalin, Kuril Is).
