Material. 1♂, 2♀ ( ZDEU): Turkey, Hatay Prov., Çamlıyayla , 36°12ʹ49.59ʺN / 35°57ʹ27.54ʺE, 363 m, 6.04.2021 (leg. B. Keskin, M. & S. Nabozhenko) GoogleMaps   .

Distribution and bionomics. This species was known from the type locality in the south of Hatay Province and from North Syria (Latakia, Akra Mts.). It was previously found on Pinus nigra   at 1480 m among parmelian lichens. We additionally found this species on Pinus brutia   at 363 m. One of the host lichens is Cladonia fimbriata   (L.) Fr. ( Cladoniaceae Zenker   ) ( Fig. 6B View FIGURE 6 ). Beetles feed on this lichen at the base of rotten stumps.
