Pseudexechia parallela (Edwards, 1925) is redescribed and illustrated. Based on study of types and new material Pseudexechia parallela (Edwards, 1925) is considered to be a senior synonym of P. hamulata (Lackschewitz, 1937) syn. n. Pseudexechia parallela is reported from Sweden, Kamtschatka, Russia and Minnesota, U.S.A. for the first time, thus expanding its known range from Europe to a wide Holarctic distribution. A new allied species, Pseudexechia monica sp. n., is described and illustrated based on males from Wales in Great Britain.
