Distribution.

Being an Altai endemic, the species has been recorded only in the Altai Province in southwestern Siberia ( Mikhaljova et al. 2015; Nefediev 2016).

Remarks.

The julid L. tigirek   has been collected outside its terra typica for the first time. The above records on the northern slope show the species preference for more humid habitats.
