Abstract: The species in the genus Clavigesta Obraztsov, 1946 have been studied more intensively since the taxonomic and faunistic revision of the genus was published in 2010 (Larsen, 2010). This has resulted in the description of one new species (Nel et Varenne, 2023) and many new distributional records. This article presents new records with a summary of the faunistic changes. Clavigesta fabrei Nel et Varenne, 2023 syn. nov. is shown to be a junior synonym of C. gerti Larsen, 2010.

Keywords: Clavigesta, faunistics, new synonym, taxonomy
