The genus Platypalpus Macquart is studied from Uzbekistan for the first time. Thirteen species are described as new for science: Platypalpus amankutanensis sp. nov., P. chimganensis sp. nov., P. commutatoides sp. nov., P. penesmirnovi sp. nov., P. sagma sp. nov., P. samarkandensis sp. nov., P. spatenkai sp. nov., P. subinfectus sp. nov., P. sublutescens sp. nov., P. tumidiarista sp. nov., P. uzbekistanicus sp. nov., P. virgatus sp. nov., and P. zeravshanensis sp. nov. Eight additional probable new species remain unnamed due to insufficient material. Platypalpus farabiensis Shamshev, 1998, P. kirtlingensis Grootaert, 1986, and P. longiseta (Zetterstedt, 1842) are recorded from Uzbekistan for the first time. A key to species of Platypalpus known from Middle Asia is compiled.
