Distribution.

Trans-Palaearctic: the species displays extremely wide distribution in Europe, Asian Russia, the Near East and the Arabian Peninsula, also in northern Mongolia. In Siberia L. curtipes   has been reported from the Novosibirsk, Omsk, Tyumen and Tomsk areas, the Altai and Krasnoyarsk provinces and the Republic of Altai ( Nefediev et al. 2016d, 2017b, c).

Remarks.

Despite a wide geographical range, and its high ecological valence, in the study area, the species inhabits mainly the northern slope.
