Remarks. This species was recorded from Turkey by FERRER & SOLDATI (1999) only, as they misinterpreted label ‘Kara Dagh (Kurdistan) (2200 m), 6.VII.1983 (Richter leg.)’. This specimen was collected by the famous Soviet-Russian entomologist Vera Andreevna Richter in the North Western Iran, East Azerbaijan Province, Arasbaran (or Karadag) mountain system with maximum altitude 2200 m. She never visited Turkey.

On the other hand, Calyptopsis emarginata is widespread in Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Iran near the border with Turkey and can be found in Iğdır Province. Bogatshev listed this species for Ararat (now Ağrı, Turkey) in his unpublished manuscript ‘ Tenebrionidae of Azerbaijan’.
