Distribution. China: Xinjiang; widely distributed in the Palaearctic region.

Remarks. Makhan & Ezzatpanah (2011) described Mylabris aschnae  from Iran. According to the description and illustrations, it almost has the same characters as M. calida  : elytra yellow, with two black spots at basal quarter, two black fasciae in middle and at apical quarter respectively; parameres sub-triangular in lateral view and with a light longitudinal fascia; and dorsal hooks of penis slender, the distal one closed to the proximal one and far from the apex. For this reason, M. aschnae  is synonymized to M. calida  in the revised and updated version of “Catalogue of Palaearctic Coeloptera (Vol. 5: Tenebrionoidea  )” by Bologna (in press). This represents a detailed explanation of this synonym.

The validity of Zonabris posticalis Dokhtouroff, 1889  is doubtful. It was treated as a synonym ( Sumakov 1915, 1924, 1930), subspecies ( Kaszab 1957), variety ( Kaszab 1959), or aberration ( Kaszab 1941) of M. calida  , but also as a valid species ( Kaszab 1958a, 1973, 1981; Bologna 2008). One of us (Z. Pan) examined some specimens determined as Z. posticalis  by Kaszab (HNHM), and considered those specimens are not different from M. calida  except the variable elytral pattern. However, this problem should be resolved after examining the types of Z. posticalis  .
