Abstract (in english)
   Clanoptilus (Hypoptilus) erythropterus (Erichson, 1840) comb. nov. is transferred from the genus Malachius Fabricius, 1775. Malachius carnifex Erichson, 1840 syn. nov. is regarded as a junior subjective synonym of M. rubidus Erichson, 1840. Malachius stolatus stat. rest. is established as a valid name for M. carnifex auctorum, nec Erichson (1840), and M. bilyi Švihla, 1987 syn. nov. is regarded as its junior subjective synonym. Malachius suturalis Motschulsky, 1854 stat rest. is removed from synonymy of M. carnifex and regarded as a valid species. Lectotypes are designated for M. carnifex, M. erythropterus and M. rubidus. New distributional data are presented for C. erythropterus (Iran, Turkey), M. rubidus (Montenegro, Serbia) and M. stolatus (Libya).
