Morphological differences between three Palaearctic species of Polylepta Winnertz-P. borealis Lundstrom, P. guttiventris (Zetterstedt) and P. zonata (Zetterstedt) - are discussed and detailed genital figures for males and females are given. Polylepta meridionalis Bechev, 1990 is shown to be a junior synonym of Polylepta zonata (Zetterstedt, 1852).
