In the past, Coranus aegyptius   was confused for a long time with the similar C. griseus (Rossi, 1790)   . Both species were separated as distinct taxa by PUTSHKOV (1987). The true C. aegyptius   is an Eremian species known to occur in northern parts of Africa (Canary Islands, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Cape Verde Islands,? Mauritania, Senegal, Chad, and Djibouti), Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Afghanistan (PUTSHKOV & PUTSHKOV 1996). New species for Iraq and Syria.
