Avicennina almatina sp. n. from cow-parsnip (Heracleum dissectum) is described as a new species from South-Eastern Kazakhstan (the Zailiyskiy Alatau Range). A new synonymy is established: Avicennina sogdiana Narzikulov, 1957 = A. spiraecola Akhmedov, 1994, syn. n. Keys to apterous and alate seasonal morphs of Avicennina are provided.
