A new species, Brachyserphus leleji sp.n., from Japan is described and illustrated. Brachyserphus abruptus (Say, 1836) is found in the Central part of Siberia and recorded for the Palaearctic Region for the first time. Three species, Brachyserphus acuticaudatus Kolyada, 2012, B. nudipleuralis Kolyada, 1997, and B. semipunctatus Kolyada, 2012, are recorded for the first time for Japan, and B. acuticaudatus for the Western Palaearctic. Renewed key to the Palaearctic species of the genus Brachyserphus is proposed.
