Remarks.

This is a locally occurring species that is distributed from the eastern part of European Russia to West Siberia and eastern Kazakhstan. The species is ecologically associated with the genus Lonicera  . The larvae probably develop in the wood of living twigs and thin stems ( Danilevskaya et al. 2009). According to Danilevsky (1988) and Yanovsky (2003), the adults are active in June and July.

Numerous specimens were collected in these two localities (Putintsevo and Sibinka River valley) in June 2005 ( Danilevskaya et al. 2009).

In our research, only several rather old and damaged specimens were collected with a predominance of females, which may indicate the end of the appearance of this species. On the other hand, the imagines were rather active, flying around the host plants and sitting on the leaves only from time to time. On the first plot, this species inhabits Lonicera  shrubs that border a river and a forest stand dominated by Betula  , Populus  and Salix  . In the Sibinka River valley, the population of O. kostini  develops in the shrubs that are growing on river banks as well as on stony areas around the valley (Fig. 15A).
