Abstract
    Four species of Chersodromia Walker (Hybotidae, Tachydromiinae) are reported from sandy beaches along the coast of the Taman Peninsula (Krasnodar Territory, Russia) on the side of the Black Sea as well as the Sea of Azov: Chersodromia isabellae Grootaert & Shamshev, 2010, C. curtipennis Collin, 1950, C. pontica Chvála, 1970 and C. nikolayi sp. nov. The new species belongs to the speculifera group and is described, illustrated and compared to C. isabellae that seems to be the closest related species. A revised key for the eight species known from the shore of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov is provided.
