TURKEY: Şırnak, Beytüşşebab, Kato Dağı , Beşağaç Köyü , 2398 m, 6.9.2013, 3 males, 2 females, plus 1 male, 1 female in alcohol  ; Şırnak, Beytüşşebab, Günyüzü Köyü , 1374 m, 6.9.2013, 1 male, 1 female, plus 1 male in alcohol  ; Hakkari, Kato Dağı, Süvarihalil Geçidi , 2350 m, 7.9.2013, 2 males, 2 females, 2300–2455 m, 6.9.2013, 1 male, 1 female, plus 1 male, 1 female in alcohol (all leg.

Remarks. I saw this interesting species for the first time in 1998 at the home of Tevfik Karabağ (1911–2003) who showed me a new species and mentioned the differences excitedly although he was too old. Later those specimens were described by his two doctorands, Demirsoy and Salman by attendance of Sevgili in 2002 (Demirsoy et al. 2002). It was surprising to me that I found it at high altitudes on Kato Mountain in Şırnak and Hakkari provinces. It is found in the high mountain steppe, among the Astragalus  sp. and Acantholimon  sp. together with many syntopic Orthoptera  species.
