Monticorixa armeniaca ( Štys, 1975)

Material examined. ASIAN TURKEY: Ardahan province: 12 km E ŞavŞat, Çam Geçidi [pass] (N 41°12.0' E 42°30.6'), 2430–2485 m a.s.l., steppes and pastures on N slope, ruins of stony shelters near the stream, small tanks, 2.–3.vii.2004, 1 ♀, J. Hájek & J. Růžička lgt., P. Kment det. ( NMPC) GoogleMaps .

Asian Turkey. Jansson (1986a, as Arctocorisa (Monticorixa) armeniaca , in map as revised; 1995), Önder et al. (2006); this paper.

Turkey (not distinguished). Kıyak & Özsaraç (2001), Kanyukova (2006).

General distribution. Armenia, Georgia, Anatolia ( Štys 1975; Jansson 1986a, 1995; Kanyukova 2006).

Comment. Jansson (1986a): ‘Known only from the Caucasus area and one locality in Turkey (the latter record is based on female specimens that had been identified as A. carinata , and it is probable that all the previous records of A. carinata from Turkey actually concern A. armeniaca ).’ Önder et al. (2006) listed M. armeniaca from Mersin province. The record of Arctocorisa carinata (C. R. Sahlberg, 1819) from Girdev lake (Antalya province) by Kıyak et al. (2006) may belong to this species as well.

Identification. Štys (1975), Jansson (1986a), Linnavuori & Hosseini (2000), Kanyukova (2006).
