Distribution in Canada and Alaska.
NT, BC, AB, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS ( Bousquet et al. 2013). All new records of Cis striatulus Mellié from NB were based on specimens captured in Lindgren funnel traps. This species is widespread (16 localities) and fairly common in the province, occurring in hardwood, mixed, and conifer forests.
A drawing of the male tegmen of the North American Cis striolatus Casey was provided by Lawrence (1971), who also commented that the species would be a synonym of Cis striatulus , the latter occurring in Central Europe, the Caucasus, and northern Africa. The type locality of Cis striolatus is Salida (Colorado). Although no specimen collected near the type locality was examined, the identification of the species is confident, and sufficient data on its morphological limits were provided by Lawrence (1971).The type locality of Cis striatulus is southern France, and there were specimens from localities in France, Germany, and northern Iran (the Caucasus) available for comparison. A few males were dissected, confirming that tegmen shape is the same as shown in Lawrence (1971). External morphological features and known intraspecific variation matched between Nearctic and Palaeartic populations of Cis striolatus and Cis striatulus , respectively, so we propose their synomymization here. Cis striolatus had two junior synonyms previously proposed by Lawrence (1971): Cis fraternus Casey and Cis macilentus Casey. These names refer to variations of Cis striolatus , and thus, we also propose them as new synonymies of Cis striatulus . As Cis flavipes Lucas, 1847 is a junior homonym of Cis flavipes Motschulsky, 1845, the oldest available name becomes Cis striatulus Mellié, 1849.
