Distribution.

Trans-Palaearctic: originally described from Korea, the species is widespread throughout Asian Russia; also known from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Tadzhikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan ( Bonato et al 2016); in SW Siberia E. koreanus   was formally recorded in the Kemerovo and Tomsk areas, Altai Province and Republic of Altai ( Titova 1972a, b; Nefediev et al. 2017a, c, d).
