Stachygethes khnzoriani ( Kirejtshuk, 1979 )


Stachygethes khnzoriani ( Kirejtshuk, 1979)  

Examined material. IRAN: Hamadan Province, Gardaneye Avaj, SE Avaj, 35°29'N 49°13'E, 2600 m, 12.VI.2014, leg. P. Audisio, on the white-flowering Salvia staminea Montbret & Aucher ex Benth.   ( Lamiaceae   ), 3 males, 4 females ( CAR, HMIM, NMPC). GoogleMaps  

This species was only known thus far from Turkey and Armenia ( Kirejtshuk 1979; Audisio 1988b, 1993a, b; Jelínek & Audisio 2007; Lasoń 2007). The newly collected material shows that this species in Iran is associated as larvae with Salvia staminea   , one of its previously recognized larval host-plants also in NE Turkey ( Audisio 1988b, 1993a, b). New country record for Iran.
