Distribution. Armenia, Azerbaijan (Talysh, Nakhchivan), northern Iran.

Bionomics. The species inhabits xerophytic mountain steppes, but mesophytic small valleys and canyons. Cylindrinotus femoratus   inhabits sparse oak forests in the northern part of its range (Dilijan, Armenia).

Variability. Specimens from high mountains in southern Armenia and Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, Azerbaijan (listed as C. constrictus   by Nabozhenko 2000) differ by a polished pronotum with sparse, fine punctation and lateral pronotal margins not sinuate near the base. Specimens of the typical widespread form have a moderately shiny pronotum that has lateral margins sinuate near the base pronotum and moderately coarse, dense punctation.
