The differential diagnosis between Dolichopus subpennatus and Dolichopus pennatus is given. The morphology of the hypopygium of Dolichopus pennatus and Dolichopus subpennatus is studied for the first time. New features are distinguished by the structure of the ventral episternum of the thorax, metanotum and the morphology of the hypopygium. The form of the 3rd antenna segment cannot be used to distinguish between species due to intraspecific variability. The data on the fauna of Dolichopus pennatus and Dolichopus subpennatus are given. Dolichopus pennatus is for the first time indicated by the Arkhangelsk and Sverdlovsk regions. Dolichopus subpennatus is first indicated for Lithuania, Moldova, Ukraine, Leningrad, Voronezh, Kursk, and Perm regions of Russian Federation, and also for Altai.
