Distribution in European Russia and Caucasus. ST: AST VOL ( Sazhnev 2016c) CA: ADG DAG KAB (Tersky Distr.) KCH/STA (Podkumok River) ( Motschulsky 1854; Jakobson 1913; Zaitsev 1946; Nikitsky 2010; Sazhnev 2017; Sazhnev & Ilyina 2017).

Armenia: Elisabethpol, Governorate ( Jacobson 1913; Mascagni 2016); Azerbaijan: Agdash (Geok Tepe) ( Schneider & Leder 1877; Jacobson 1913; Zaitsev 1946; Sazhnev 2018b); Georgia: Karayaz, Tbilisi ( Zaitsev 1946, 1953; Mascagni 2016).

Distribution. The species was described from Italy (Etruria), distributed in South Europe, Caucasus (Russian North Caucasus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia), Near East (Arab Emirates, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt (Sinai )), Middle Asia ( Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan), Pakistan and North Africa ( Mascagni 2016; Sazhnev 2020).

In Russia, this species occurs only in the extreme south of European part and North Caucasus (Sazhnev & Shapovalov 2016; Sazhnev 2016b). The records for most part of Siberia (species is possible in the southwest West Siberia) and the Russian Far East are erroneous and require confirmation ( Sazhnev 2020).

Remarks. The species recorded for Mtskheta-Mtianeti Krai of Georgia for the first time. The record from Khashuri (Mikhailovo) ( Schneider & Leder 1877) on the opinion by F.A. Zaitsev (1953) is other species Augyles sericans ( Kiesenwetter, 1843) .
