Redescription, illustrations and photos of type specimens see in Nabozhenko & Keskin (2016).

Distribution. Turkey (Hakkari Prov.), Syria, Lebanon, Israel ( Nabozhenko & Keskin 2016). One female from southeast Turkey (south of Hakkari Prov.) listed by Nabozhenko & Keskin (2016) differs slightly from Mediterranean populations of O. punctata   . Status of this population probably will be revised after the study of males.

Bionomics. The species inhabits many biotopes, feeds on lichens on Cedrus libani   , Quercus   sp., Pinus   spp., on stones in high mountains.
