Remarks.

Eodorcadion carinatum  is distributed from the South Urals through South Siberia, northern Kazakhstan and Mongolia to the territory of northeastern China. Five subspecies have been described to date and a nominotypical form occupies the western part of the species range (up to Krasnoyarsk). The species inhabits steppe and semi-desert habitats up to an altitude of 1900 m a.s.l. (Toporov and Milko 2013). The populations of all subspecies are usually characterised by a large number of individuals that occur on numerous plots. It seems to be primarily ecologically associated with Agropyron  spp. and Elmynus  spp. ( Danilevsky 2007c). In the western part of its range, the larvae often feed on the roots of cereals and forage plant species ( Plavilstshikov 1958). The adults start to appear in June and can be found until September ( Danilevsky 2007c).

Only a single male that was hidden under a cow dung in a pasture habitat was collected (Fig. 14G).
