C o m m e n t: The distribution of O. grandis   is confined to the Caucasus region, including the Greater and the Lesser Caucasus, as well as Northeast Turkey and North Armenia. The species was also reported from Azerbaijan, based on an old record from "Kirovabad" (= Gandza) ( ASSING 1999b). It is currently unclear if this record is correct or, like material from "Helenendorf", based on a mislabelled specimen (see comments in the sections on O. stenocephalus   and O. hebes   . The currently known distribution is illustrated in Map 3 View Map 3 .
